Colton Corner: Full STEM Ahead!

STEM participants at Colton Elementary answer the age-old question: How many rubber bands does it take to pressure a watermelon into exploding. 

During the week of March 6, Colton Elementary School’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) offered an afterschool STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) camp.

The camp, held in the elementary school, was originally offered with Monday for K-1 students, Tuesday for grades 2-3 and Wednesday for grades 4-5, but with the snow day, the older kids had to wait until Thursday to participate. The PTA had 75 students pre-register to participate in the educational and fun activities, but with registration left open each day, that number figures to climb.
