Children and adults came together for the district’s 2nd annual STEM Family Night on Dec. 11. This event, which took place at East Northport Middle School, provided kindergarten through fifth grade scientists, engineers, and mathematicians with the opportunity to engage, experiment, and explore with a multitude of resources.

Parents joined their children in the STEM Challenge Café, which featured activities designed and facilitated by district STEM teachers and assisted by Technology and Engineering Honor Society, physics, Academy of Information Technology, and calculus high school students.

Activities available to students included Kodable & Scratch coding, VEX robotics, Snap Circuits and Laser Mazes, Ozobots & Hexbots, math games and more.

“Our K-5 learners and parents exercised their creativity and problem-solving skills as their natural curiosity was inspired,” said David Storch, the district chairperson of science and technology education

Parents and children also attended a Math Fluency Game Café where they worked together in grade-level activities to strengthen mathematical skills.

Additionally, during two parent workshops that focused on Math Technology Resources and an Update on the State of Elementary STEM Teaching and Learning, children enjoyed the STEM Challenge Café, experimenting with one activity to the next.
