All Little Britain students had the opportunity to learn about science, technology, engineering, art and math with interactive and hands-on activities. Mobile Ed Productions set up a mobile S.T.E.A.M. museum in the gymnasium on Wednesday, January 11, 2023.
“Hands-on learning is important to see how science works,” said Pete Betti, representative from Mobile Ed Productions.
Mobile Ed Productions allows students to explore the museum at their own pace so they can spend more time at stations that appeal to their individual interests.
“My favorite activity was the chemistry table,” said Mason Concepcion, fourth-grade student. “I liked the parafluid and it being so hands-on, it was a lot of fun.”
Parafluid or paramagnetic fluid is magnetic matter that is liquid and can be moved around with a magnet. Another station was taking apart skateboards and putting them back together, another was a 3-D printer. There were also building blocks, a light game and much more.
The stations were monitored by volunteers who are a part of the Parent Teacher Organization.
“I really enjoyed this because I am able to get up and move around,” said Aria Heney, fourth-grade student. “I like all of the different stations.”
