Yavneh Academy Hosts Family STEM Night

Yavneh Academy hosted its fifth annual Family STEM Night on January 6. This event is a very popular parent/child event for Yavneh families to learn about STEM, an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and math. As in past years, the evening was driven by the middle school students who participated in the STEM leadership program. The STEM leaders spent the semester exploring various aspects of STEM through hands-on activities, and subsequently led over 75 participating families in STEM related activities at the event. The evening consisted of numerous interactive, hands-on activities, with an emphasis on robotics, engineering, electronics and collaborative skills. These activities ranged from low-tech (build a tower using KEVA planks) to high tech (code a robot to perform a task), and encompassed all aspects of STEM. Family STEM Night was hosted by Yavneh’s educational technology department: Chani Lichtiger, Claire Hirschhorn and Tova Burack.
