The Rome-based Project Fibonacci Foundation, whose activities have included multi-day STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) conferences for students, is getting more national attention — with the event being featured on an episode of the Science Channel program “Street Science.”
The Episode 14 segment, which aired Wednesday night and was called “Dead Drop Danger,” also will be available to be streamed on the ScienceChannel.com website, said Dan Kostelec, Project Fibonacci STEAM outreach coordinator.
Science educator Kevin Delaney of the “Street Science” program was in Rome last August and conducted live science experiments for students attending the second annual Project Fibonacci STEAM Conference.
During the final day of the weeklong STEM event, held at The Beeches, Delaney also recorded segments of his television show in which he and his team demonstrate intriguing scientific phenomenon through experimentation, according to a Project Fibonacci announcement.
Those segments were included in Wednesday night’s show on the Science Channel.
The Project Fibonacci Foundation, Inc. is the brain-child of ANDRO Computational Solutions, LLC, a 25-year-old scientific research firm in Rome.
The organization says its mission is to introduce youths to a culture of interdisciplinary STEAM learning, and to teach them to become creative, independent leaders of community resurgence.
While the week-long Project Fibonacci STEAM Conference — which features a wide range of speakers and demonstrations — is for students entering their sophomore year of high school through college, the organization says it also has other programming available for all ages.
