FERNBANK STEM NIGHT WAS AWESOME!!
DeKalb County School District Region 2 Family Engagement
On Monday, December 11, 2017 Fernbank Elementary hosted it’s 1st Annual Family STEM Night. STEM Night is a parent family engagement event held during the school year that features interactive activities geared towards discovering the fun of science, technology, engineering, and math at Fernbank.
During the session parents and students engaged in an exploration of Fernbank’s Garden which they also got to sample some delicious smoothies made with our own kale, grown from the outdoor learning garden. We also had the fabulous Ms. Kellie Ryan, Region 2 STEM Facilitator speak about the great benefits of a STEM education and how it furthers student learning. Parents were able to watch a short video of Fernbank students explaining the engineering design process of STEM projects completed this year in the classroom. Before concluding the night students were able to experiment like a scientist, create like a technologist, think like an engineer, and problem solves like a mathematician by participating the STEM exploration of creating a robotic hand with materials like straw, toothpicks, tape, and string.
We definitely had an awesome event. If you didn’t make it out this year, please make sure you come next year.
