COLDSPRING — Coldspring Intermediate School students are rocketing toward a great future through hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) projects that are as fun as they are educational.

Just in time for the Halloween season, students in Courtney Bailes' GT classes are learning all about blood. 

"They studied the four components of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma and the functions of each," Bailes said. "They then created a slime model to represent each component."

On Friday, all CIS classes took turns visiting the Will Hatch Kidz Science Safari on exhibit in the CIS gym. The traveling STEAM show is a hands-on, interactive exhibit with over a dozen STEAM-related activities that provide students with a true immersion experience as they explore, play and learn. 

The exhibits included a gears table, domino race table, iPad animation station, dino dig, plasma sphere, bike generator, pixel play, digital microscopes, and more.
