Activity booths lined the main hallway and filled the gym at North Creek Elementary on Thursday for Melissa STREAM Night, an annual community event celebrating science, technology, reading, engineering, art, and math.
More than 20 local vendors and school groups were represented, with booths designed for families to learn and play. Students from Melissa Middle School National Junior Honor Society served as volunteers at the hands-on stations, explaining the activities to their fellow young Cardinals. MTX Unplugged, the Melissa High School acoustic and vocal performance club, performed in the cafeteria.
The Melissa Schools technology department led drone demonstrations. The Melissa High School computer maintenance class, led by teacher Chris Mueller, offered students the opportunity to tinker with the assembly of a processor.
The Gifted and Talented program showcased student engineering projects. The computer lab transformed into a coding station. Fourth grade students could visit the library for their author signing and a photo op at the #Read2Grow photo booth.
Other booths included paper airplanes, art and blogging, building blocks, “Super Science” Silly Putty, Lego assembly, cup stacking, ramps and bridges, and many more.
