Harmony Science Academy – Sugar Land’s Kindergartners through 5th graders host annually an interactive Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) Festival. They add an international flare to the event because their student body is very culturally diverse and enjoys sharing their traditions.

On Saturday, January 26th, the students and staff entertained the community and many local leaders, including  Congressman Pete Olson, Precinct 4 Judge Justice M. Joyce, Fire EMS Chief Doug Boeker, Assistant City Manager Douglas Brinkley,  Fort Bend Economic Development Council CEO Jeffrey Wiley, Pakistan Chamber of Commerce PJ Swati, Broadcasting Director at ABC 13 Rahan Aslam and Commissioner DeMerchant’s Chief of Staff  Ahmad Alaswad, with performances from Kaminari Taiko (Mochizuki Culture Center),  Philippines Folkdance (FYP Cultural Ambassadors) and Tuoi Ngoc Group.

Teachers, students and parents represented nations around the world and amazed the visitors with STEM projects,  such as extracting DNA from a strawberry to water filtration using gravel. The event enables the community to see firsthand what the students are learning and creating at the school.
