“Light It Up Blue” is tomorrow

Tomorrow is “Light It Up Blue” day for Autism Awareness Month. Kids may wear something blue in support of understanding and acceptance for people with autism.


STEAM Night scheduled for May 8

Please join us for STEAM Night on May 8 from 6:00 until 8:00.

To kick things off, we will have the Paddy Wagon and Explorer’s Club food trucks at 5:30 and the Graeter’s Ice Cream truck. If the weather cooperates, OSU’s Drone club will be flying some of their drones. Rockets will be flying. Principal Fox and some of your favorite teachers will be racing life-sized hovercrafts built by Michael Seed. Kathyayani Mahadevan has graciously agreed to bring some of STEM-U’s robots and activities, which are always a hit. Worthington’s own WorBots (who won a competition in Cleveland last weekend) will be demonstrating how their robot works. And, of course, we will have hands on experiments and activities.

To make all this happen, we need volunteers. Please consider signing up. There are two shifts 6:00-7:00 and 7:00-8:00.
