Students at John Paulding School were energized by the Mobile STEAM Museum on May 10, when it took over the All-Purpose Room. Students moved about the room with a partner and took part in different activities that provided examples of engineering: building structures, using gears and learning about ancient architecture using friction, pressure, gravity and most importantly, TEAMWORK!!!
The students were mesmerized watching a 3D Printer create a “Groot” from Guardians of the Galaxy! They tapped their feet and giggled at the Music Maker where they could create different beats from different genres of music.
Many students had fun at Bop-a-light, a game of strategy while others were quietly focused at Buzzwire. This activity involved moving a ring across a pipe carefully not to touch it or a buzzer would go off.
In the center of it all was a robot that the children could use coding to program its movement All in all the children thoroughly enjoyed the museum while learning Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math – STEAM!
The Foundation for the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns provided a grant to bring the STEAM Museum to the District.
