Reno, Nev.— (May 4, 2017) On Saturday, May 20th, the students and faculty of Coral Academy of Science will host the 4th annual interactive S.T.E.A.M. Exposition in the Reno/Sparks area. This event will take place from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Coral Academy of Science High School at 6275 Neil Road.

This premier event is sure to stimulate an awareness, interest and discussion in the community about the importance of an integrated curriculum that includes the sciences, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Attendees of all ages will have the opportunity to participate in several engaging presentations, live demonstrations, and hands-on activities. Food trucks will also be part of the event, so come curious and come hungry!

“This event is a great opportunity for students and adults to learn more about S.T.E.A.M. and Coral Academy,” said Nick Pasto, Graphic Design and Digital Game Development High School Teacher. “We are approaching this expo the same we approach our curriculum, by giving students a hands-on experience that inspires curiosity and creativity.”

With three campuses and over 1,200 students, Coral Academy provides a safe learning environment supported by a diverse community and a student body that is dedicated to a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. 100% of the 2016 graduates were accepted to college.
