Laura Fach a third grade teacher at Frank A. Berry Elementary School asks a student if a marble sinks or floats during the Family Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) night at Berry School, in Bethel, on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, in Bethel, Conn. The event provided a hands on experience for students and their families with activities and experiments they could participate in at the school. Fach's experiment was "Sink of Float" and asked participants if the object would sink or float when placed in water.

BETHEL — Students will showcase their science, engineering and art projects during an exposition on Wednesday.

After a hiatus due to COVID-19, Bethel is bringing back its STEAM Expo, which allows students from all grade levels to conduct a project and demonstrate what they’ve learned to their families and community members.

Projects are focused on science, technology, engineering, art and math — known as STEAM.

“It’s a real celebration of STEAM,” Assistant Superintendent Kristen Brooks said.

The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Bethel High School. Attendees will see research presentations, hands-on activities, art demonstrations, math games, photography, and engineering and computer projects, according to a flyer.

Businesses, universities and community members are invited to attend.
