STREAM INCUBATOR | SUMMER 2023
STREAM stands for Science, Technology, Robotics, Electronics, Arts + Mathematics. The STREAM Incubator is an inquiry-based, hands-on learning program for youth, ages 10 – 15, facilitated at CVAG by educator Stew Savard.
After completing their LEGO build of the newly-renovated gallery in 2022, the summer STREAM participants are now building a LEGO model of the Vancouver Island Regional Library in Courtenay.
They are also continuing their work with EV3 and VEX V5 robotics. Inspired by the REPOSITORIES SERIES by Reva Stone, which is currently presented at CVAG as part of the exhibition Together Apart | Under One Roof, the STREAM students have initiated Imagining + Exploring Robot Behaviours. As part of the Explorative Make Art Series this summer, CVAG and the STREAM students invite the community to join them in experiments using old and new technologies to create robots that produce drawings, make sounds, have sensor responses and new behaviours.

Computers and EV3 robots supplied by North Island College (Youth Academy at NIC).
