STEM Day, Summary – November 16, 2016

On Wednesday, November 16, 2016 from 9am-2pm in the E-lounge at GSU, SEA teamed with the Division of Biology and Chemistry to provide engaging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities for students from Foundations 4 AdVANCEment. The children, ages 4-13, took part in a variety of activities that embraced learning, imagination, and creativity. Students began with three art explorations that involved creating watercolor paintings with salt, building marble mazes, and creating toothpick structures using play-doh. Later, students were able to explore such equipment as cameras, microscopes, and scales. Students were able to examine butterflies under a microscope and use air pressure gauges to blow up balloons. We enjoyed a lunch with the students before heading out for a tour of GSU’s sculpture garden. The event was a great success due to the fantastic partnership with Dr. David Sowa from the Division of Biology and Chemistry as well as the planning and preparation of SEA leaders Nicole Cristelli and Molly O’Shea, and our SEA faculty advisor, Dr. Katy E. Hisrich. Thank you all for creating a fun and memorable day for our Foundations 4 AdVANCEment friends!
