James W. Rice STEM Night
This is the image for the news article titled James W. Rice STEM Night

James W. Rice Primary School celebrated Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math education on Monday, April 24th at their S.T.E.M. Night.  There was a great turnout as students had an opportunity to showoff their own STEM projects and see what other classrooms did to showcase their knowledge of scientific investigations, engineering projects, and hands-on technology.

In addition, stations were set up that allowed families to explore authentic STEM learning.  For instance, at the “Plant a Seed” station students learned about what plants need to grow and thrive while they also got to take home a planted sunflower plant.  “Marshmallow Engineering” let students experiment with how to produce the strongest shapes using only marshmallows and toothpicks.  The “Bubble Factory” encouraged kids to make good observations and record data.  We also had baby chicks on hand, the Star Lab, Solar Powered Bugs, and our very own Coding Club showing how kids - as young as kindergarten - can become novice coders.

Everyone had a great time and all of our future STEM experts look forward to our next STEM Night at JWR where learning and growing are magical.
