Note: this event has been postponed until Thursday, March 15.
Wiscasset Middle High School will be celebrating technology education at its Family STEM Night and Community Supper Thursday, March 8 from 5-6:30 p.m.
Community members are invited to visit this exhibition of Science Technology Engineering and Math, or STEM, learning where people of all ages can participate in Hour of Code and engineering challenges.
Hour of Code is a nationwide movement that promotes computer science education in classrooms. According to a 2016 Gallup research poll, just 40 percent of American high schools have reported teaching computer coding.
Wiscasset Middle High School’s Prema Long is a certified Hour of Code instructor and her students will demonstrate binary coding and more at this evening’s gallery of STEM classroom projects.
Other projects include strawberry DNA extraction, middle school robotics, and much more. There will be a special guest appearance from the community-supported Wiscasset Area Robotics Program club, who will be showcasing their competition bots as they gear up for the Southern Maine Robotics Track Meet coming up in April.
Plus, Wiscasset Middle High School’s food pantry will be hosting a free spaghetti supper for all to enjoy.
STEM is pervasive across every aspect of people’s lives and every 21st century learner must have the opportunity to get ahead of the technology wave. Come see what Wiscasset Middle High School has to offer for STEM learning on Thursday, March 8, at 5 p.m.
Wiscasset Middle High School is located at 272 Gardiner Road, in Wiscasset. For more information, contact the school at 882-7722.
