'The Singing Engineer' shares love of STEM with students
Roy Moye III, also known as “The Singing Engineer,” performed in front of kindergarten and first grade students on Aug. 24 at the Maize Performing Arts and Aquatics Center. Moye conducted science experiments on stage with student volunteers and focused on science, technology, engineering, and math, all while getting the students to sing along to music. Moye is the founder and leader of STEMusic, an organization that aims to use engaging and entertaining music to inspire the next generation of multicultural STEM.
Moye, who lives in Wichita, is a musician, professional engineer, mentor, and Wichita State University graduate. His performances in Maize USD 266 this week will reach about 2,400 kindergarten through fourth grade students in all five of the district’s elementary schools.
Maize USD 266's STEAM teachers were recognized and thanked during the STEMusic performance, as well. This school year, each elementary school has a full-time STEAM teacher. They will work in STEAM labs that were part of the district’s 2019 bond issue.
Thanks to the Maize Education Foundation, which provided the grant funding for Moye to visit Maize USD 266 and perform for students!
