Stewart Manor School’s Science Club exhibited the research and projects they completed during Science Night on June 10. Under the guidance of Assistant Principal Cynthia Cameron and teachers Michelle Cabrera and Theresa Fisher, the club members have been meeting weekly to learn about the scientific method. Students in grade four participated in a simple machine unit, constructing their own simple machines using K’NEX, while students in grades five and six conducted independent research on a multitude of topics using the scientific method.
Technology was a key component in each grade-level project, with students creating digital presentations to show off their work. New to the event this year was the work of the school’s sixth grade robotics club. A variety of classroom project-based learning assignments were also showcased at the event, providing families insight to the engaging science curriculum the students partake in.
