S.T.E.A.M. Day takes over Graham School
Students at Graham school had the opportunity to learn about science, technology, engineering, art and math with interactive and hands-on activities.
Mobile Ed Productions set up a mobile museum in the gymnasium on S.T.E.A.M. Day on Thursday, November 17, 2022. Activities and lessons also took place in the library and classrooms.
“Today I am going to know how science works,” said Kamori Nembhard, third grade student. “I have never done anything like this before.”
Mobile Ed Productions allows students to explore the museum at their own pace and manage so they can spend more time at stations in the gym that appeal to their individual interests. One station was taking apart skateboards and putting them back together. There was also a music station, a light game and much more.
“My favorite activity was the chemistry table,” said IvyRaye Chambers, fourth grade student. “I am having way more fun with this being hands-on, rather than just sitting at my desk.”
The stations were run by parent and student volunteers. Teachers selected seventh grade students who showed responsible behavior during the school year.
“We are able to help kids understand STEAM on a different level than teachers, because we are their peers and are able to communicate differently,” said Jayda Ramdene, seventh grade student.
Hands-on activities like this allow students to have a unique way to enjoy their learning.
“Hands-on learning is important to see how science works,” said Pete Betti, representative from Mobile Ed Productions.
“I really enjoyed this because I am able to watch minds grow and expand,” said Chelsea Singh, seventh grade student.
In the library, students were reading the book “Rosie Revere Engineer.” Afterward, they were their own engineers with the option to build something from nature, a piece of furniture, a tower and more.
