Cherokee Heritage Day

Parent University-S.T.E.M. Night

Grand View School held it's first ever Family STEM Night on April 14. Teachers and volunteers prepared "hands-on" activities related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math for families to explore and experiment while learning and having fun.  Over 230 students, parents, and grandparents traveled to activities where they were challenged to make predictions, test predictions, and formulate solutions to problems.  Science teacher, Brett Bryant, had students exploring with magnet attraction and switch circuits.  Younger children visited a float station where they were able to create boats from aluminum foil and other objects to predict how many toy soldiers could float across the pool in their boat. Laura Myers, Grand View Science and Robotics teacher, joined with Kirk Norrid, a representative from the REC (Robotics Education Corporation), to set up remote control robots. Students
were asked to try to place scoring objects in a goal which allowed them to develop eye/hand coordination and driving skills while exploring the engineering process.  A large operation table was set up to allow students to try to retrieve objects inside a cut-out area without touching the cut-out sides. Students were also challenged to explore liquids and solids by mixing glue and starch to make slime.  A microscope was set up to allow students to get a closer view of crystals made from Borax.  Many other activities were available to provide exposure to help to nurture children's inquisitive nature and support higher level thinking skills.  "This is one of the best events we've had", said Principal Steve Gillman.  "It takes all of us working together, like a family, to do the best we can in teaching and raising our students."
