S.T.E.M. Club Information
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
WHAT ARE YOU INTERESTED IN? Sending experiments 100,000 feet into the Earth's atmosphere, building structures from household items, constructing rockets and launching them, competing against other children in our district's competition, being leaders in our school's Family S.T.E.M. Night, and more are all opportunities for your child.
S.T.E.M. Club at Mountainside is set up to allow as many scietists as possible to particiapte throughout the year. For the 2019-2020 school year, there will be three (3) rotations that scientists can participate in.
1. Students in the first rotation will focus on the scientific process where students launch pongsats in the Earth's Atmosphere.
2. Students in the second rotation will construct Estes Rockets and launch them in December.
3. Students in the third rotation will design a prototype to compete in the district's S.T.E.M. competition. Also, this group of scientists will grow their leadership skills and run stations in the Family S.T.E.M. night in the spring.
If all three rotations sound like something you would enjoy, you can sign-up for all three. Because this club is a popular club, space is limited. Third, fourth, and fifth graders are welcome to join, and membership is decided on a first-come-first-served basis. First and second graders will be invited to join the club.
We look forward to serving our future scientists with more targeted activities. As facilitators of this club, we learn from the children every year. We look forward to what this year has to bring as well!
