Connecting to Technology in Lynwood’s New Makerspace

Students across all grade levels at Lynwood Elementary School experienced various new technologies within their makerspace room as librarians from the Sachem Public Library led an interactive showcase.

Throughout the week, Lynwood students explored technologies such as remote control mechanical arms; Osmos, an iPad attachment and app that allows students to bring drawings from the tablet to paper; and Mbots, programmable remote-controlled vehicles with a coding component. 

Along with new technologies, students were also challenged with more familiar objects. At one station, students were supplied with clothespins, popsicle sticks and alligator clips, and tasked with constructing a weight-bearing structure. An assortment of Legos was supplied at another station and students were challenged to build functioning cars or replica homes. Finally, common hand tools were incorporated to test the students’ problem-solving skills as they collaborated to remove various nuts, bolts and screws from a pegboard. 

In its inaugural year, teachers will utilize the Lynwood Elementary makerspace room to conduct educationally enriching and engaging activities. 






Fire Prevention Demonstrated at Lynwood

Fire safety took precedence at Lynwood Elementary School as students participated in fire prevention-week activities this October, including an informative assembly presented by members of the Farmingville Fire Department.

During the assembly, students enjoyed multiple demonstrations by the firefighters, learned essential safety tips for emergency situations and witnessed the rescue capabilities of the department. Students watched a vehicle extrication scenario as well as multiple firefighters rappelling from the department’s ladder truck from a height of approximately 100 feet.  Firefighters taught students how to safely exit from a burning structure and the importance of developing a meeting point in a safe location outside their home in case of a fire. 

At the conclusion of the demonstrations, students were given time to explore the various apparatuses and ask firefighters questions about their experiences as members of the fire department. 

Throughout the district, local departments will visit the schools to educate students on best practices in emergency situations.

Throughout the month of September, Sachem Central School District students and staff came together to organize a variety of fundraisers and activities to benefit the victims of devastating hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Among the various items collected were personal hygiene supplies, nonperishable food items and a harvest of crops grown in Wenonah’s community garden, as well as gift cards and other monetary donations.

All items will be donated to one of three Texas schools the district has adopted or to local organization Island Harvest.
