We produced a TV show! Team Neutrino has created an educational children’s show to inspire young students to be engaged in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). The TV show, Full STEAM Ahead, will start airing Saturday, August 27th weekly at 10 am.
For the past two years, Team Neutrino has been working on producing an educational children’s TV show, Full STEAM Ahead. Full STEAM Ahead strives to illustrate fun and creative ways for students to engage in STEAM. The show is seven episodes long. In each episode, Team Neutrino takes students to various locations around the Ames community, such as the Virtual Reality Applications Center at Iowa State and the SportsIowa athletic complex to learn about different STEAM topics. In each episode, team members also walk students through an experiment they can do at home to learn more about the subject.
The Full STEAM Ahead project was inspired by our YouTube series, Stay-At-Home-STEAM (SAHS), which was an effort to engage young students with at-home STEAM activities amidst the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The show consisted of 27 episodes that were published over the course of nine weeks. The SAHS series helped the team to win the prestigious Chairman’s Award in 2021, which recognizes a team who spread the FIRST organization’s mission of educating youth and inspiring them to pursue STEAM. This past year, Team Neutrino was awarded the Regional 2022 Chairman’s Award and was internationally recognized with the Championship Engineering Inspiration Award, which celebrates outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a team’s school or organization and community. These feats would not have been possible without the students’ effort for both series.
The Full STEAM Ahead show will be broadcasted on APATV 121-16 and streamed on YouTube the day after its original airing. Join us and watch the premiere of the first episode to learn about robotics and make a craft to take home on August 27th, 10 am at the Ames Public Library!
