Family STEM

Family Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Night

On Thursday evening, nearly one hundred 2nd grade students and parents gathered in the Columbus School cafeteria to learn about STEM and problem-solve together as a family STEM team!  Antoinette Koehler, Kelly Kalinowski, Rana Rabadi, Vanessa Guzman-Cruz, and Fran DelFico, part of the Columbus’ 2nd Grade Team, prepared an overview of STEM and three separate challenges for all to grapple with.  Ms. Koehler addressed the families and kids by reminding them that STEM investigations are at the heart of every Columbus STR2EAMing into Learning Convention (Science, Technology, Reading/Research, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics).  Ms. Koehler introduced the work this way: “STEM is hands-on problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity and innovation; this is about working collaboratively and building resilience and persistence in the face of frustration or failure.”  She added that most important, “STEM is just ton of fun!”

The teachers challenged students and their parents to build paper airplanes that were quickly submitted to grueling flight tests.  Teams were then asked to build the tallest structure possible with a limited number of index cards. Last, using marshmallows and toothpicks, parents and kids designed stable, solid structures.   

Dr. Parvey and Mr. Galland were present, and Dr. Parvey rolled up her sleeves and assisted many families and kids in their constructions.  The Columbus STR2EAMing into Learning Convention will take place this year over three days and two evenings, from January 22 to 24th.  The Columbus PTA will also hold a STEM-oriented book sale throughout the convention days.
