THE JOURNAL Wednesday, Sept. 21; 2016 5 STEAMING AHEAD King George students Talia Scott (first row, sixth from left) and Aubrianne Thoms (seventh row, second from left) were selected as two of 69 students to attend Science Technology Engineering and Applied Mathematics (STEAM) Academy summer program at Old Dominion University. Now in its fourth year the STEAM Academy is a non-profit collaboration between more than two dozen businesses, institutions and colleges that seeks to accelerate science, engineering, technology and applied mathematics education for advanced students. Sum- mer STEAM is a one week, intensive, immersive, residential, academic program. Ambassador Talia Scott and Ambassador Aubrianne Thoms want a career in the medical field. STEAM offered a week long opportunity to meet doctors, hear lectures, better understanding of health terminology, hands on experience with nervous and muscle systems, as well as the opportunity to dissect a pig heart.
