Two Saturdays ago, 6 students from Room 222 traveled to NIU's Stemfest and it was filled with science stuff.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
When we walked through the door at the NIU Convocation Center, we said, "This is so cool"!
There was a lot of stuff to do there. There was so much to see, we ran out of time to see everything.

Here is a journey through our Stemfest experience:
J.P is demonstraiting blowing on the orange balls and the balls moved around.
We had fun with our families and M.O. even got a plant.
This is like a big bike. We think this is call an ATV or tiny Dune Buggy.
Many families came together and traveled through the stations.
We even got to play with Legos in the water! Sometimes big brothers can be very helpful.
Some of us got to build with magnet blocks. We also got to play with Legos.
There were some big kids that built a whole city with Legos. P.D. got to use a Lego robot to drive over large bumps.
This is a ball. If you pull it, it gets smaller. When you let go, it gets bigger. This was A.E.'s favorite part.
At one station there was a stick with a button and when you pushed the button the static would make tin foil float.
There was even a bubble DJ that played music and blew bubbles.
It was a fun outing with families and Mrs. Bright.
And that was the end of Stemfest. We can't wait until next year!
