This past May, Babylon Memorial Grade School faculty, staff, students and their families came together to celebrate achievements in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics during the school’s inaugural “STEAM Night.”

Held in both the school’s gymnasium and cafeteria, attendees were introduced to a world of boundless STEAM-oriented opportunities, including, but not limited to, Ozobot stations, Lego building stations, book and plastic cup tower building, creating launchable paper rockets and designing “pom pom poppers.”  

Throughout the hallways, student work from the school year was on full display, highlighting the excellent work produced both in the classroom setting and in the after-school STEAM Club. 

Within the school’s computer lab, stations were set up as students were able to engage in collaborative computer coding activities on the Smart Board and create their very own interactive videos on iPads utilizing green screen technology. 

Additionally, student-volunteers from Babylon-Junior Senior High School showcased their achievements in robotics, and were even able to grant the younger students the opportunity to maneuver the robots themselves via wireless remote controls.

Sixth grade student Amiram Cameau is credited with designing the excellent STEAM Night Logo, which was featured on posters, flyers, along with the official STEAM Night T-shirts that teachers wore throughout the course of the night. 

The district would like to the thank the multitude of community members, district faculty and staff members, West Babylon High School students, Babylon Junior-Senior High School students and the volunteers from the Babylon K-6 Parent-Teacher Association for all of their efforts toward making the evening such a resounding success.
