Making STEAM at J.L. Lomax

Distinguished learners presented their science fair projects, explaining their hypothesis, problem, research, data collection, and solutions. The topics ranged from Popcorn: Are You Getting Your Money’s Worth to Video Games and Stress Relief. Other topics included, Georgia’s Most Polluted Cities, Rock Salt vs. Table Salt, Supertasters, and even Yeti vs. Ozark Trail. The creators of these six boards Deshaunti Newkirk (5th), David Gilyard (5th), Zatavion Head (5th), Kejwan Gayden (5th), Tyler Taylor (5th), and William Scott (5th) will traveled to the district-wide STEAM Day competition with their teacher Dr. Lauren Whittaker on May 5.


Also attending the district STEAM Day were J.L. Lomax Lego Robotics teams: Donte Cigola (5th) and Jabarie Baker (5th); Alan Martinez (4th) and Darris Roberts (5th); and Junyla Miller (5th) and Kendall Wiggs (5th). These students were able to show off their computer programming and mathematics skills, competing against other city elementary and middle school robotics teams.


Ten students from the J.L. Lomax Art and Project Kite Clubs also presented their artwork at the district STEAM Day, attending with their teachers Ms. Donnte Thomas and Mr. Shawn Henderson.
