Students at Mary Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School in Cheektowaga love their special STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art, Math) classes and the hands-on learning associated with the program. From Kitchen Chem and Arcade Academy to Fun With Physics and Robotics, STREAM impacts all students attending MQA, from Universal Pre-K through Grade 8.
To ensure that the program continues this year and beyond, students are taking part in a fundraising initiative that, like the STREAM program itself, has a hands-on element. Instead of just asking the community for funds for the program, the students have artistically enhanced ordinary business envelopes with drawings of their favorite STREAM projects. These envelopes are now being distributed to Catholic churches in the Cheektowaga area.
