Dallas ISD’s third annual STEM Day offered hands-on activities and demonstrations that brought aspects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life for students and parents. The free event was Saturday, Feb. 6, at Skyline High School.
From robots to critters, from race cars to tiny sailboats, from a fake snow machine to a cloud forming on a classroom floor – there was no shortage of things to see, touch and learn. In addition to a day of sessions for elementary, middle and high school students, STEM Day featured a Vex IQ Robots invitational competition that gave Dallas ISD robotics teams a chance to compete with schools from other districts.
Also, the Science Fair Showcase touted top projects created by district students, and Tech Fest showed off the winners in Dallas ISD Health/P.E.’s multi-media contest. Competitors in the Mathematics Olympiad faced off as well.
