STEAM Night is tomorrow

STEAM Night (formerly known as Science Night) is tomorrow, 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. 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 hand’s on experiments and activities.

There are still a few volunteer slots open. Please consider signing up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e4cacab29a1fa7-steam
