Riverview School District students prepare for this year's STEAM Showcase — science, technology, engineering, art and math — at the high school in Oakmont.

Riverview School District students' scientific talents and technological know-how will be on display at the third annual STEAM Showcase.

It's scheduled for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 10 in the high school library's media center, 100 Hulton Road in Oakmont.

STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and math. The showcase will feature robots, 3D printing, virtual worlds and other projects.

High school Principal Eric Hewitt said he is excited for the public to see the students' hard work in action.

“All Riverview community members are invited to see what grades 7-12 are working on currently including Hummingbird robotics, animation and preparations for the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Sciences,” said Hewitt.

Enrichment teacher Mike McNally plans to present a robotically engineered automated assembly line mimicking an authentic assembly line operation.

More information about the showcase and other district activities is available via the district website's master calendar .

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
