My friend Usha (she helped out at my last Cupcakes 'n Code event) and I volunteered at STEMmerday at a nearby Elementary school.
You're probably thinking: "STEMmerday... what???"- but let me explain.
A nearby elementary school partnered with Lockheed Martin, the advanced technology and engineering company, to integrate a “STEM curriculum” for the school. As part of this initiative, they created an annual "STEMmerday" event, during which students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities.
Students explore more than 30 hands-on, fun activities. Paper airplane contests, egg drop competitions, rocket launches, robotics and more!
We had a lot of fun and when the event was over, we stayed back to play some of the programming games ourselves because they looked so fun!
