Southside STEAM Expo Educational Event at the Coweta Fairgrounds

4158405(Newnan, GA) — Odyssey Charter School and Coweta County 4-H are again partnering together for a fun, educational event that will target youth.

The 2nd Annual Southside TEAM Expo will be held in the Coweta County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall and Agricultural Building on Saturday, March 21, 2015, from 10am-4pm.

According to Odyssey Principal Andy Geeter, “This year, we are both excited and honored that our STEAM Expo has been selected for inclusion in the Atlanta Science Festival.”

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. During the Southside STEAM Expo, students of all ages will be able to visit more than 30 exhibit booths to participate in hands-on activities related to STEAM subjects.

For instance, at the High Touch High Tech booth, they will be able to launch compressed-air paper rockets. They can fill cavities at the Coweta Dentistry Associates booth.

At the University of West Georgia booths, they can enjoy the strongest snail competition or view the sun through solar telescopes. And we can’t leave out the Big Thinkers booth, where kids can make their own slime!

Several booths will have free giveaways and there will also be performances and presentations on the STEAM Expo stage.

Big Thinkers Science Exploration will give a chilly dry ice presentation at 11am and Coweta STEM Institute will put on a Mad Scientist show at 2pm.

Zoo Atlanta, Georgia Reptile Society and Cochran Mill Nature Center will have live animals to see and touch.

Piedmont Newnan Hospital is a sponsor for the Expo and some of the other exhibitors include Huntington Learning Centers, Hyrel 3D Printers, Savannah College of Art & Design, Civil Air Patrol, Bubbles & Brushes Art Studio, Clayton State University, National Weather Service, STEMscopes, Coweta Water & Sewer and many more.

Admission is just $5 per person and children 2 and under are free.

“This is a budget-friendly and family-friendly event. You can have six hours of non-stop fun and there is a tremendous educational benefit too,” says event chairperson Jennifer Petrino.
