Rubik’s Cube challenges, Lego mystery builds, Oobleck mixing, “Be a pH Jedi” and “Financial Football” are just some of the experiences awaiting participants at the next FREE Mini STEM-tastic event at Hommocks Middle School, Friday, March 24th from 6pm - 8pm.
Open to the public and designed to engage all ages, “Choose Your Challenge” Night encourages participants to choose from a variety of STEM activities and record their efforts on “Challenge Cards.” The night’s highlight will be the return of the “Chain Reaction Challenge” in which individuals and groups bring together separate segments of a large-scale, fully functional Rube Goldberg machine, which last year spanned 60 feet.
“In keeping with our STEM-tastic philosophy, this hands-on family activity night will make learning fun and bring STEM skills to life through a variety of challenges,” said Margaret Kaufer, president of the STEM Alliance of Larchmont-Mamaroneck. “This may be a ‘mini’ event but it will be mega STEM-tastic!”
Food, drinks and raffle prizes will also be available for sale at the event. The STEM Alliance is a grass roots, non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing K-12 STEM education and enrichment initiatives to benefit students, parents and educators in the schools and community. The STEM Alliance’s vision is to serve as a network that connects communities to STEM skills as a means of solving problems and fostering innovation.
