The East Islip School-Business Partnership held its inaugural STEAM Day in the district’s Early Childhood Center on April 8, attended by hundreds of second and fourth grade students and facilitated by middle and high school students.     

“STEAM Day was designed to give second and fourth grade students an experience that facilitated an interest into the study and possible careers in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics,” School-Business Partnership coordinator Bridgette Lopiccolo said.

Students attended the event with their classroom teachers and explored robotics, played with art and technology manipulatives, tried their hands at building towers, learned about refraction through photography, watched a drone fly through the ECC, and so much more.

East Islip High School Robotics Club President Zoe Elder assisted with the event as a facilitator.

“It’s important that the students attend this kind of event,” Elder said. “I got into STEAM because of an event like this when I was younger.”

After the students explored the available stations, they gathered to watch two short STEAM videos. There was also a main event, a robotics contest between two teams for all to witness and to pique the interests of the students even further.
