Storytellers adopt aviation theme for STEAM Expo

Storytellers have adopted aviation as the theme for stories and activities they will use to entertain during the Southside STEAM Expo at the Coweta County Fairgrounds in March.

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math, and the expo will be part of the week-long Atlanta Science Festival founded by Emory University, Georgia Tech and the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce.

For this year’s second annual expo, the Southern Crescent Storytellers and Kuumba Storytellers of Georgia will entertain the audience with stories about famous aviators and flight, puppet shows, and fun activities. Create a “storygami,” build a paper airplane, and enter the Great Paper Airplane Race to win a prize.

The Southern Crescent Storytellers are a dedicated group of talented people who are committed to the arts in south Metro Atlanta, to the advancement of children’s literary accomplishments, and to helping make storytelling once again an integral part of culture and entertainment in Georgia and the Southeast.

The Southside STEAM Expo is set for Saturday, March 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the fairgrounds in Newnan. Admission is $5.
