September 28, 2014

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Please be sure to ask your child about our recent school-wide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Day! During this exciting event, our students had the opportunity to explore a STEM mobile museum where they learned all about robotics, gears, bike generators, geometric shapes, arch building and 3-D printing. It was truly an educational experience that was enjoyed by all!

This event was generously co-sponsored by the district and our PTA. I would like to thank Floria Mallozzi, our district science coordinator, for planning the event. In addition, I would like to thank Michelle Brunone, Ronna Haynes, Kristen Messerschmitt, Katie Paulson, Rob Sanderson, Jaime Sullivan, and Stephanie Vaughn for volunteering their time to assist with the STEM program.

“… Leadership tomorrow depends on how we educate our students today—especially in science, technology, engineering and math.” — President Barack Obama, September 16, 2010

Here are some STEM extension ideas:

  • http://www.kineticcity.com is a website full of Science games for students in grades 3-5. One activity asks students to replace the body systems of a character who sounds like Arnold Schwarzenegger. The website requires free registration.
  • http://pbskids.org/zoom/activities/index.html – Zoom is an interactive PBS program that makes suggestions for exploration – with programs like a “Virtual Kitchen” for experiments and lots of printables.
  • The Connecticut Science Center, located in Hartford, is a great resource and a fun place for families and caregivers to visit. With 150 hands-on exhibits, a state-of-the-art 3D digital theater, four educational labs, plus daily programs and events, the Connecticut Science Center offers endless exploration for children, teens, and adults. From physics to forensics, geology to astronomy, visitors have the sciences at their fingertips.
