Featured guest Eric Energy introduced the group to frozen carbon dioxide, the power of static electricity and had parents and students on their feet experimenting with electronic voice alteration software. US Open Robotics demonstrated the art of Lego Robotics and engaged the students in small group competitions. The event also offered hands on STEM activities for all ages in the areas of aerodynamics, catapult building and engineering with a marshmallow/spaghetti tower challenge. The event - which is the second one of its kind – was part of the celebrated Catholic Schools Week.
St. Louis School, a certified X-STEM School by the USA Science and Engineering Festival, also offers opportunities like Cyber STEM Club (Grades 4 – 8) where students engage in extracurricular learning activities, including using LOGO-based language software to create video games, encode and decode messages using cryptographic algorithms, and more.
