Nipher Middle School science students performed at the inaugural “YO! STEAMaster Competition.” As an acronym, STEAMaster has a dual meaning. STEAM represents science, technology, engineering, art and math, while Master represents the emphasis for students to demonstrate mastery of STEAM content. The STEAMaster Competition was an opportunity for students to demonstrate their brilliance as science students by communicating their understanding of ecology in the form of a rap or poem.
