STEAMfest 2015

New Blog Design Is Now Functional!

Thanks for your patience as I have been reworking this site to make it more functional!

At this point, the basic structure appears to be working such that you should be able to find the menu tab that is of interest to you and from there find specific documents or links that would be most applicable.   Eventually the above menu list will be sorted into larger categories with submenus underneath, but for now this should take you where you need to go.  If you have ideas or needs for menu topics in addition to what already appears, please let me know.  If you have documents, websites, etc that can be shared and posted here for others, please send them my way.  Check back frequently as I continue to add items and clean up the cosmetics and finer details of each the pages.

In news…

Going to STEAMfest this week at Prairieland Exhibition Park?  Be sure to stop in at the Musical Instrument Building station.  I will be there assisting in this session where students and teachers will be able to build and design their own musical instruments by using spare parts of real instruments and various building materials (duct tape, hoses, tubing, etc.).  Imagine a musical instrument lego land, and you’ll have the idea of this hands-on station.  In addition we look forward to having a Colonsay student display his wooden bugle horn at this session which was a joint band and PAA project from last school year!  Be sure to check out this impressive project and see the learning process involved.
