Making STEAM accessible and engaging
We are a group of international high school students striving for improvements in the field of STEAM. In addition to our plethora of activities offered, we would also like to show everyone who we are behind the scenes. Please scroll below for more information.

Through this experience, she hopes to spread this interest to more students, while developing a deeper understanding of STEAM subjects herself. You can sometimes find her in the stationery aisle fascinated by artificial aroma markers.
