5th Grade m@k3r Night!

On Thursday March 31st the @RiveterLab hosted the 5th grade class and their parents as they launched into their final trimester of science.  This trimester will see the girls exploring Design & Engineering heavily so what better way to launch than a m@k3r event!

Students and parents had the opportunity to build with TinkeringLabs Electric Motors Catalyst Kits, explore our collection of Little Bits, Build and compete throwing “PowerUp” paper airplanes, and play the video games they created in Scratch using controls they also designed using MakeyMakey.  It was a really fun night of learning for students and parents alike!

Some Metrics:
40 of 44 girls attended our event and these students were accompanied by 29 Moms, 21 Dads, 17 Siblings, 1 Uncle, 2 Grandparents and 2 Babysitter/Nannies … that’s a total of 112 people that attended our Maker Event! 


An event like this doesn’t just happen; the tireless work of Mr. Wilsey, Ms. Brisson, Mr. Lengel, and the entire Building & Grounds team needs be recognized – as well as the commitment of so many parents to come out and support our program.  Thank you all.
