Sacajawea's Family STEM Night

Sacajawea Elementary held its Family STEM Night on Thursday, Nov. 10th. Families enjoyed interactive science projects that included making paper rockets, building harmonicas, making oobleck, making a boat out of foil and seeing how many pennies it would hold, breaking open geodes, and making star finders. This event was funded by a grant from Idaho STEM Action Center so there was money for every student in the school to do an in-class science experiment as well. Several community partners also attended. They were Caldwell Fire Department, Caldwell Police Department, City of Caldwell Waste Water Treatment, West Valley Medical Center, Micron, and Caldwell High School Engineering and Robotics Teams. There were also 15 Caldwell High School students and 11 Syringa Middle School students that attended to help with everything from serving food to helping in the classrooms.
