Rocky Point UFSD hosted its second annual elementary STEM Celebration for students to create solutions to hands-on STEM challenges, to share their designs with their peers, and to continue to improve their solutions.
This year’s STEM Celebration theme was “Fun with Fairy Tales.” Several hundred students and parents attended this year’s event. Attendees built zip lines for Rapunzel, a parachute for Jack to escape the giant, houses for the three little pigs, bridges and boats for the Billy Goats Gruff, and constructed a variety of other solutions to fairy tale character challenges. Attendees also had participated in a LEGO Build-a-thon, and see Rocky Point robotics in action.
The district continues to build opportunities for students to explore STEM fields and possibilities, and to generate enthusiasm for solving STEM challenges.
