Campers Enjoy Hands-On Learning with STEAM Express

Campers at the Parks & Recreation District of Denham Springs enjoyed a variety of hands-on science activities thanks to the STEAM Express that made a special visit to some of its day sessions. Director Jolie Gregoire says STEAM Express, a mobile learning lab, has booked several “field visits” for the summer to help expose more children to fun learning activities. “When children can engage in scientific and engineering-based activities in the context of a fun activity, like summer camp, then it’s a great way to make learning fun and interesting,” Gregoire says.  “Our hope is that the more our students can engage in these types of activities, then the more inclined they may become to pursue more learning in these areas, and eventually pursue a career in that path.”
