Middle School Student Engineers Attend STEM Night Event
Sixteen "student engineers" from the Middle School of Plainville journeyed to the Connecticut Science Center on November 16th for the UConn Engineering Ambassadors STEM night. Students toured the exhibits at the Center, and over 60 UConn Engineering students shared their enthusiasm for STEM via several interactive demonstrations. One demonstration featured the making of "elephant toothpaste" while another exhibit demonstrated a glow stick simulator, where students poured seltzer waters together creating a chemical reaction that glowed in the dark.
Middle School of Plainville student Ella Schwartz commented, "The incredible variety of exhibitors gave us all a wide degree of varying experiments and demos to view. I thought it was also cool that they let us explore not only the setups of the exhibitors, but the whole museum on the fourth and fifth floors. It was like a field trip to the Science Center and a visit to a STEM fair."
"With many more demonstrations that touched on a wide variety engineering fields (Civil, Mechanical, Computer Science, Biomedical, Chemical, and so much more), this was an evening that showcased how amazing and enriching STEM truly is," noted Middle School of Plainville Technology Education teacher, Camille Westfall.
