APS students went into spring break on a high note, ending the month of March with the Eighth Annual Kids Interested in Technology, Engineering, and Science (KITES) Science and Engineering Festival. The event was held on March 29 at Scott Elementary School, G.A. Towns Elementary, Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy (CSKYWLA), and John Lewis Invictus Academy.
There were a variety of exhibitors from multiple career fields ranging from packaging to education. The students enjoyed hands-on activities that allowed them to understand what was happening scientifically through creating it. Students at CSKYWLA for example, created soda, organic face masks, and tested for contamination with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
K.I.T.E.S. encourages and motivates students to explore their options for the future. APS is dedicated to creating an environment that cultivates the next generation of inventors, entrepreneurs, business leaders and scientists.
