The IS held its Family STEM night to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math on February 8th. Hands-on learning activities included:
Brain Savers - Families use materials to build protection for an egg and then drop it from the top of the bleachers to test it.
Jet Toy Car - Families build a car that is powered by a balloon and then test it to see how far it can go.
Blast Off - Families build a small "rocket" that gets launched off of a straw when you blow through it.
Artistic Robots - Families build a robot that draws using a cup, markers, a motor and various other items.
Skimmer - Families create a skimmer that slides across the table when placed in front of a fan.
Launcher - Families use craft sticks, spoons, and rubber bands to create a "catapult" to launch a cotton ball.
