Each year, SSEF presents an Annual STEAM Showcase for the 11 Sandy Springs public schools and the community. This year's STEAM Showcase will be a virtual event on March 17, 2021. Learn more about the STEAM Showcase and about participating as a sponsor and exhibitor via this link.
The Showcase is followed by STEAM outreach events, field trips and programs in our schools. SSEF twice received the Georgia STEM Award for Extracurricular Programs by the Technology Association of Georgia for this program. This program serves 2300 students at an annual cost per student of $5.00.
From the funds raised through STEAM Showcase sponsorships, SSEF offers STEAM grant opportunities to all public schools in Sandy Springs for ongoing after-school STEAM clubs and programs. Grant recipients display their projects at the annual STEAM Showcase. Grants served 350 students at an annual cost of $40.00 per student.
SSEF sponsors an annual math competition event sanctioned by Math Olympiads for Elementary and Middle Schools (MOEMS). The competition is one of only three MOEMS elementary level tournaments held in Georgia. This has been held at High Point Elementary in the past, and we anticipate a virtual event in 2021. This program serves 75 students.
