As part of the fourth annual Orange County Science and Engineering Week, Math for Service hosted the STEAM Scavenger Hunt on Sunday, April 8, 2018. At promptly 12:30 PM, the Sage Hill Wilkins Town Square area was filled with young students, bustling around to different interactive activity booths manipulated by volunteers from different Math for Service organizations.

Thirty-nine OC Science volunteers led the second annual STEAM in the Park at Bill Barber Park in Irvine last Saturday from 2 - 4 p.m.
On one side of the gym, wooden airplanes whirled into the air. On the other side, bottle balloon vehicles wheeled down the track. These creations were constructed by none other than students in grades 6-8, who gathered together on April 8th at Sage Hill School to compete in OC Science's 4th annual Junior Engineering Olympiad.
There is no event besides OC Science’s monthly OC Science Fun Nights that allow kids to have fun and learn more about their favorite topics at the same time. On June 17 Ardent Academy saw a “Physics Fun Night” to help kids explore all things physics.
Science Olympiad is an international non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. It is also a wonderful opportunity for students who wish to pursue a career in STEM.
Most people wouldn’t expect kids from grades three through five to voluntarily spend their Sunday mornings learning about science and all that STEAM has to offer.
