The iCreate Festival will be held at the university’s Yasuda Center. The iCreate Festival: A Celebration of Academics and Visual and Performing Arts will feature the District’s CAPS Expanded Learning students leading hands-on robotics, science, and engineering demonstrations, while other students will showcase their talent through song and dance.
“We have so many students across all grade levels who are passionate about STEAM,” said Dennis Warman, director of CAPS Expanded Learning. “And, other children express their creativity through the performing arts. Both are talents that should be equally celebrated.”
Thousands of District students from kindergarten through high school participate in CAPS academic enrichment programs before and after school. Those programs boost what students learn during the school day by focusing on STEAM, short for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.
The iCreate Festival is a partnership between the District, San Bernardino Community College District, and Cal State San Bernardino. Other partners include C.H.O.R.D.S., the Arrowhead United Way, Alliance for Education, and U.C. Riverside, among others.
iCreate will run from 9 a.m. to noon. This event is free and open to the public. Parking at Cal State San Bernardino is free on Saturday, April 29 for this event.
