A Successful STEAM Night

As a means of showcasing all of the wonderful things happening in science, technology, art, mathematics and engineering, the Babylon Elementary School recently hosted its inaugural STEAM Night, inviting students and their families to the school for an evening of fun and learning.

Thanks to the efforts of Babylon Elementary School STEAM instructor Emily Moran and the Babylon Elementary School Parent-Teacher Association, the school’s gymnasium and cafeteria were transformed into a number of STEAM-oriented activity stations for all to enjoy. Included were challenges such as “Build Your Own Parachute,” where students were given a number of common household items to build a parachute which could be gently thrown off the gym bleachers, along with a creation station which allowed them to build their very own lava lamps and create massive balloon towers. 

Additionally, the night featured engineering-oriented KEVA Planks, and a large coloring wall in the cafeteria made generously by Ms. Moran herself. 

The district would also like to thank community parent Mrs. Griffin for creating the beautiful lobby display which read “Full STEAM Ahead,” along with the hundreds of students and families who attended throughout the course of the evening’s two sessions.
