Miller Avenue School, Wading River School and Albert G. Prodell Middle School students had an opportunity to share in the STEAM programs that take place when educators from the Mattituck-Cutchogue School District recently visited.

A day-long schedule, organized by Director of STEM Dr. Amy Meyer, included projects such as Squishy Circuits, Bristle Bots, Escape the Classroom and Mystery Science activities with students working together on building towers, engaging in structured play, producing music and thinking outside the box as real-life engineers and scientists do. Lessons in writing like a scientist and a whirlwind of LED lights, dough, buzzers and motors, STEM challenges, and even marshmallows were items the students used to create and collaborate with. Tours of the computer lab and updated library spaces at Miller Avenue and the library makerspace, 3D printer and augmented and virtual reality opportunities at Prodell were just some of the highlights of the advances provided to SWR students.
