Upcoming Events

STEM Saturday - Harnessing the Power of Wind: Wind Energy!

Students will work with STEM Professionals and college students on
projects to learn about the principles of simple circuits, electricity and wind
energy. Students will build simple circuits powered by wind energy.
Students will be able to describe how a circuit works and follow directions
to create different kinds of circuits. Students will design, build, test and
evaluate their own wind mills.

My daughter has been attending STEMNOLA since it started. When she learned this STEM NOLA was going to be about "The Power of Chemistry" she couldn't wait to attend. She talked about it all week and she was not dissapointed. I watched her face light up with the chemical reaction that created the elephant toothpaste. We had to continue the activities once we got..in the kitchen with food coloring, baking soda, vinegar and what ever else we would allow her to mix together to see what reaction would be. This is what STEM NOLA is about...sparking that interest and seeing it leave STEM Saturday and continue at home. She wants to make the elephant toothpaste at home so we are working on that. Thank you, thank you Dr. Calvin Mackie!! Awesome Awesome Awesome!!!

I'm sure it is no coincidence that my daughter came home from the STEM Saturday and redesigned her squishy with thermochromatic paint and then proceeded to conduct a static electricity experiment with a balloon and pepper. Thank you for getting the wheels turning!.
