CAREER EXPLORATION ACADEMY (Formerly STEAM Academy Day) - March 6th, 2020

Patterson is once again planning to hold an Academy Day this school year, on Friday, March 6, 2020. This day has been known as STEAM Academy Day for the past several years. This year, in preparation for future plans in the school and district, STEAM Academy Day will become Career Exploration Academy Day. On this day, all Patterson students will attend one 45-60 minute class of their choosing, in which they will learn about a specific career and do some amazing hands-on activities related to that career. The classes are led by Patterson parents knowledgeable in their fields, District 204 specialists, and local businesses. Students will be able to choose which class they'd like to attend a couple of weeks prior to the event. This event occurs during the school day, at Patterson.
We love to welcome new topics and instructors to this fun event each year! If you are interested in leading a class that will get students excited about your career, we would love to have you as an instructor! As an instructor, you would lead up to three 45-60 minute class sessions during the school day, with around 15-20 students in each session (k/1, 2/3, and 4/5 grade levels).For more information, questions, or if you are interested in leading a class, please email
