This is an essential skill for future professions." Students were encouraged to approach the challenge with a unique perspective, and the creativity and innovation were on full display. One student commented on the experience, "I loved working with my team to design and build our wind-up car. It was challenging, but also fun to see our ideas come to life."The event was a testament to the power of STEAM education, which provides students with hands-on learning opportunities that encourage creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, and innovation.
