STEAM NightOn Thursday, February 27th we held our 5th annual STEAM Night! STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Thanks to parent Carroll Magill for spear-heading this event yet again! We had 14 hands on activities spread out across the building led by a variety of community organizations or parent volunteers. Activities included a Fog Ring Vortex Cannon (MIT students from dynoMIT), Augmented Reality Sandbox (Andrew & Lisa Harteveldt, Haggerty parents), Arduino Robotics Demonstration (Jose-Luis Martinez, RSTA teacher and CRLS students), Origami and Math Art (Nili Pearlmutter, Haggerty Math Coach, and Margie Singer, Haggerty Math Interventionist), Quiver Masks and new STEAM kits (Emily St. Germain and Margaret Macri, STEAM programming Cambridge Public Library), Makey Makey and BEE Bots in the computer lab (Mr. McGonegal, Haggerty Educational Technology Specialist), Marshmallow Engineering Challenge (Mr. Reynolds, Haggerty Art Teacher), Seed Planting Activities (Haggerty CitySprouts Gardener Stephanie Budd), Green Rooftop & Planting (Mothers Out Front), Natural Science Station (Darrin Johnson and New England Base Camp), One Minute of Wonder (Kahtleen Fitzgerald, Haggerty parents and founder of Cambridge Environmental Literacy Project), Art from Recyclables (Carroll Magill, Haggerty Parent), and Wind Tube (built by Stos Koyanis, Haggerty Parent). We had just over 100 students attend STEAM Night (not including their grownups). Thanks to everyone who pitched in and helped make this night a huge success! Thanks to Friends of Haggerty for funding!

STEAMTo keep on STEAMING, check out the opening of The Hive, the new STEAM creativity zone at the Main Library, which will open to the public in March. The Hive includes a hands-on workshop (aka “makerspace”) stocked with digital and traditional fabrication tools, multimedia recording studios, and an Extended Reality Lab for experiencing virtual and alternate reality. There will also be a new Tech Bar, where patrons can check out laptops, Go-Pros, STEAM kits and other devices, and get help from friendly and knowledgeable library staff. This space will be staffed by our former Haggerty teacher Laurie Gaines - space will be open mid March! Stay tuned!
