A group of St. Teresa’s Academy and Rockhurst High School students attended a presentation by Sam Cossman, the “Volcano Diver”, on volcanoes at Linda Hall Library as part of a STEAM activity Oct. 4.

Before heading to the presentation, the students went out to dinner at Winstead’s together where they were encouraged to talk about their experiences with STEAM.

“I wanted to get more involved in STEAM by starting out with an event I knew I would be interested in, like volcanoes,” sophomore Sophia Durone said. “I thought this would help me involve myself in these sort of things and hopefully involve myself more in the future.”

The students then went to the presentation at Linda Hall Library where speaker Sam Cossman talked about his experiences with volcanoes and technology. The presentation ended with students asking questions.

“It’s the first time we’ve come to Linda Hall Library with some students, and I thought it would be an interesting opportunity to see what’s available. I think he was a great first person to see,” said math teacher Jo Weller.

The next STEAM event is the MECA Challenge Oct. 22 at Rockhurst High School.
