Livingstone students help with STEM program at Koontz

Livingstone College students in the TRIO program organized a night of science activities based on experiments designed by the N.C. Science Festival as part of the STEM program.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.
Amber Griffin, the Livingstone College advisor to the program, said she was “very pleased with the things that everyone involved accomplished.” She was happy to see the teachers, parents and administrators all working together.
“It was a wonderful way of preparation for the Science Olympiad in Charlotte in May,” Koontz Elementary fourth-grade teacher Kendel Johnson said. “The science competition is the same type of event as the students experienced tonight.”
Koontz Elementary is the only elementary school in Rowan County that competes against Charlotte schools in the science competition.
The after-school event ran from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. It involved 70 students in grades three through five and 48 parents. All of the Livingstone students running the scientific centers were volunteers for the event.
The 12 centers of activity were Garden in a Glove, Build A Bubble, Gross Goo, Invisible Ink, Sound Sandwich, Marshmallow Towers, Fingerprints, My Genes Bracelet, Paper Flying Machines, Parachutes, Create A Coaster, and Stomp Rockets.
TRIO is an outreach and student support services program.
