STEAM Night 2019

STEAM Night 2019
Posted on 03/06/2019
STEAM NightOn Wednesday, February 27th we held our 4th annual STEAM Night! STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Thanks to parent and PTO chair Carroll Magill for spear-heading the event yet again! We had 12 hands-on activities spread out across the building led by a variety of parent volunteers. Activities included creating and keeping an Art Bot (lead by parent Alicia Volipicelli and her team from Lincoln Lab), the wind tube (led by parent Stos Koyanis), Makey Makey in the computer lab (led by Mr. McGonegal) - and this year an augmented reality sandbox (led by parents Lisa and Andrew Harteveldt)! The augmented reality sandbox was constructed by parent Andrew Harteveldt for use at Haggerty! A huge thank you to him for all his efforts.

STEAM NightThe technology was developed at UC-Davis, and this sandbox simulates a topographic map and surface water flow as you move the sand in real time. It’s truly amazing! We also had Math Mania (led by Ms. Pearlmutter and Nataliya Yufa - founder of Cambridge Math Circles), Coding, Tinkercad, and 3D printing (led by Mr. McGonegal), Artsy Activities (led by Ms. Gaines), Stop-Motion Animation (led by Ms. Novogrodsky), Green Screen Film Festival (led by Ms. Novogrodsky), and Cardboard Extravaganza (led by parents Cameron Wu & Jen Richards). We had around 100 students who attended STEAM Night (along with their families). This night would not be possible without the support of Friends of Haggerty! Thanks to everyone who pitched in and helped make this night a wonderful success! Keep up the STEAMing.
