The 2017 STEM Night Event will feature four super-fun hands-on activities and a competitive Science Fair. Start creating your amazing ideas now for the big event, held on February 2nd from 5-8pm.
How to Participate
Bring your egg drops and trebuchets to the cafeteria by 9am on February 2nd. There is no pre-registration or fee. Participation prizes to the first 200 kids at each event.
Science Fair participants must pre-register by Friday, February 27th. There is a $5 fee to participate; however, no child will be turned away. Science Fair projects will be kept with the student in their classrooms until Fair set-up any 3:30 after school.
Bring all robots with you to the runway from 5:30 to 7:30pm. You are responsible for the safety of your own robot. There is no pre-registration or fee. Participation prizes to the first 200 kids.
Rubik’s Cube Team Tryouts will be help from 5pm to 7:30pm. We will have an official G4 timer and mat available for kids who can already “do the cube.” All kids who can do the cube in under two minutes are eligible to join the SSKY Cube Team. Participation prizes to the first 200 kids. There is no pre-registration or fee to participate at STEM Night; there are fees associated with joining the SSKY Cube Team.
Build a contraption that will protect a raw egg from a 25’ drop! It must be smaller than a 12” cube, weigh less than 5 lbs, cannot use a parachute, and must not be dangerous or extra-messy. Using any materials, kids can work in teams and with adult assistance, but each child may only participate in a single egg drop.
Build a trebuchet that can send a gummy bear flying! Your trebuchet can be made with family or friends, use any materials, and be homemade or from a kit — as long as you can carry it, you can launch it! Kids can work in teams and with adult assistance, but each child may only participate in a single trebuchet launch.
Build a robot, any robot, and send it down the red carpet at STEM Night! We’ll have music, lights and an MC, so bring something amazing to show us! Your robot can be any size, any shape, and made from any materials, homemade or from a kit–but it may not be dangerous or extra-messy, and must conform to school rules. Kids can work in teams, and with adult assistance, but each child may only exhibit a single robot.
