Pullen Elementary hosted it's first S.T.E.A.M. night on February 23rd. The night was packed with activities to promote science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Students had over twenty stations to visit. Students tried their hand at controling the da Vinci surgical arm. The RHHS Robotics team brought their hoop shooting robot for students to run. Students challenged themselves to build domes with gumdrops and toothpics. Mathnasium and Troy Shull, game inventor, engaged students with fun math games. Several stations had opportunites for students to get their hands dirty with science experiments, such as Mad Science goo and speed snow. JoAnn's Fabrics demonstration of a Cricut showed students how technology is used in crafting. A Chilhuly station, Arts-A-Blast and the Science of Music represented the arts. CORE was on hand with electricity demonstrations. At one stations, students used popsicle sticks to create a catupult which they used to launch paint covered cotton balls for to create a Jackson Pollock inspired painting. Max Corneau provided the students with an incredible opportunity to view the stars through his high-powered telescope. The big excitement was on the stage where students synergized as they built a cardboard city.
