Harlandale ISD’s final STEM Family Night of the school year took place at Kingsborough Middle School on March 8.

Students and their families enjoyed a night full of learning as they participated in various hands-on activities related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“Slime has been our biggest attraction,” Communities in Schools STEM Project Director Natasha Wilkerson said. “Students also participated in robotics, stop-motion animation, build a boat, space landing and space docking.”

The McNay Art Museum, Laser Quest, BiblioTech, Girls Inc. and the Southwest Research Institute were also in attendance to offer different activities.

“Our new one tonight was Southwest Research Institute. The students learned about liquid nitrogen and did a little explosion, which was really cool,” Wilkerson added. “They are actual scientists and engineers showing the kids their research in San Antonio, so we ended it with a bang, literally!”

Students also had the opportunity to see that what they learn in the classroom can be applied in the real world.

“Every station is connected to a real career, the straw rockets to aerospace engineers and the boats to marine architects,” Wilkerson explained. “That is what STEM is all about, taking everything to the next level, and leading students toward that STEM-related career path.”

Overall, the night was a success and students were treated to delicious hot dogs and snow cones.
