Quarry Lane is proud to share the success of a new event held at this year's Art Stroll called the 'STEM Lab', designed to introduce elementary school students to STEM through unique, hands-on activities.
Students explored 6 different types of activities: robot driving, marshmallow house building, a tallest tower competition, rocket launching, workshop tours (including a demonstration of the laser cutter), and a liquid nitrogen demonstration.The most popular activity was the liquid nitrogen demonstration, where students froze flower petals in liquid nitrogen and watching them shatter. Parents and children alike enjoyed
Having created a marshmallow house, a student tests its structural integrity on a Jell-O pad.
Students look on in amazement as a rubber band has lost all of elasticity, while a high schooler explains how it's due to the rubber being below its glass transition temperature.
