Malverne students celebrate science at STEM night


From kindergarteners to high schoolers, Malverne students and their families were invited to the high school on March 25 for an evening of hands-on science, math and engineering activities designed to inspire an interest in STEM learning. STEM is a teaching approach that combines science, technology, engineering and math to help students develop creative design, problem solving and critical thinking skills.

The event offered the opportunity for students of all ages to engage in chemistry, biology and physical science experiments, as well as math games and science-themed crafts. Students were also able to explore robotics, float across the gym on a student-made hovercraft and enjoy ice cream made on-site using liquid nitrogen.

High school students even volunteered their time to help facilitate the activities and share their knowledge and experience with the younger students.
