CSO Chloé (CGUHS 2020) and CSO Merlin (CGUHS 2021) met with the Mayor and Casa Grande City Council Monday evening during a Study Session at the Council Chambers. The Arizona Chief Science Officers were on the agenda to present their plans for the 2nd Annual Casa Grande STEAM Fair. Along with the presentation was a request for the Mayor to proclaim the Week of March 2 – 8, 2020 as STEAM Week in Casa Grande. The goal of the Casa Grande STEAM Fair is to showcase Casa Grande as a hub for innovation primed for growth in well paying, highly technical careers. They have previously presented to the CGUHSD Governing Board with the same request. In January, the CSOs will be presenting to the CGESD Governing Board, asking them once again to proclaim STEAM Week in Casa Grande Elementary Schools. Buchanan and D’souza have met with Central Arizona College and Abbott Health to secure their participation and support for this project. The 2020 CGUHSD SciTech Festival event on March 6, 2020 and the Casa Grande STEAM Fair on March 7, 2020 will be two of more than 4000 events across the State of Arizona scheduled for January through March of 2020 as a celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics.
