Steen Science

On Thursday 23- Jan. the Steen School held a Science program in their gym. There were a number of stations that the Students could get a quick lesson in some scientific principals. One station demonstrated how sound travels in waves, and how they travel can affect what is heard. Another was to show what surface tension is, and how it can be controlled.Students also saw how to push a stick through a balloon, along with the power of a magnet to move an object without touching it. The Students also had a chance to be creative in using marshmallows and pasta to make Architectural elements that are used in buildings.
