Spooky STEAM for Sachem Students

Waverly Avenue Elementary students in Cathy Juliano’s fourth-grade class participated in a Halloween-themed STEAM activity that challenged their creative design skills by calling for the construction of miniature haunted houses.

To begin the project, students drafted unique design ideas, keeping in mind the structural integrity of their buildings. Following the design process, students turned their ideas into reality utilizing popsicle sticks and glue. Throughout the construction process, students employed problem-solving techniques by incorporating the objects around them to act as braces, allowing the glue to set and the structures to strengthen. 

Following construction, students decorated their houses with paint and Halloween-themed cutouts. 

Constructing Balloon-Powered Vehicles

Waverly Avenue Elementary students practiced basic engineering principles as they worked together to construct balloon-powered cars during an interactive STEAM lesson.

In the school’s new STEAM room, students from Cathy Juliano’s fourth-grade class began collaborating on designs to create a functioning self-propelled balloon car. Supplied with foam balls, straws, wooden rods, tape, rubber bands, a water bottle and a balloon, students began to assemble their cars. Assisted by art teacher Susan Kinsey and Librarian Luann Cronin, students applied problem-solving techniques throughout the construction process to overcome design obstacles and effectively complete their vehicles. 

At the conclusion of the lesson, the student groups came together to test their balloon-powered cars and collectively discussed solutions to improve their vehicles.

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.
