Lunchtime learning in motion at Harbor


The wind was blowing inside a Seaford Harbor Elementary School classroom on Feb. 28 as second-graders tested their car creations.

As part of the school’s STEAMed Lunch program, which features regular activities that incorporate science, technology, engineering, the arts and math, students built their own wind cars. The youngsters used small foam boards, straws, sticks, wheels and clay for their creations. Afterward, students blew on the sails to see their vehicles travel across the tables and learn how wind creates energy.

The project was led by teacher’s aide Melissa McFadden and Assistant Principal Carrie Schozer. The students were able to personalize their wind cars with stickers.
