The Delaware Biotechnology Institute (DBI), in partnership with AstraZeneca and the University of Delaware’s College School and Lab School, hosted a Family STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) event on May 16 at The College School/Lab School. More than 120 students, parents and teachers engaged in hands-on science activities to draw focus on the importance of STEAM training and jobs to the community.

As a part of DBI’s Science for All Delawareans program, Family STEAM Night is designed to engage elementary and middle school students with science through fun and educational hands-on experiments.  Included with the hands-on experiments, images from the UD Art in Science and art produced by children at the schools, including 3D printed art, were on display for the participants to observe.
