OTISVILLE’S STEAM NIGHT INSPIRED HUNDREDS

Posted January 13 at 8:40am

“How will Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics shape your future?” That was one of the questions Minisink students were out to explore at Otisville’s STEAM Night on Tuesday, January 10.

 

Activities and challenges included star gazing inside the inflatable Starlab; coding workshops in the school library with the district’s technology team; a hands-on animation workshop; robot demonstrations by students in the Robotics Club; 3-D printing exhibitions by the high school and middle school technology departments; navigating a digital obstacle course with the help of robots Dot & Dash; and math games and puzzles.

 

The robotics room was one of the main attractions. It gave visitors a chance to ask questions of the robot builders and maneuver a robot through a task, with a remote control. With remote in hand, four-year-old Jack, who has two siblings at Otisville Elementary, was in no rush to go anywhere else. “I like the Lego guy. It’s kind of funny,” he said, without taking his eyes off his robot.

GLACIERS FLOW IN OTISVILLE

Posted January 9 at 9:02am

As winter moved in, and snow and ice returned to the landscape, fifth graders at Otisville hosted a special visitor to learn about glaciers, one of the world’s most fascinating phenomena. Glacial ice covers one tenth of the planet and stores 75 percent of its fresh water. Glaciers hold the snow and ice that survived last summer’s melt, as well as the remnants of past ice ages.

 

That’s just some of the knowledge Sophie Goliber, a 2013 Minisink Valley graduate, and student of geology at the University of Buffalo (UB), came to share with Otisville’s fifth grade classes over the course of two days, when she returned home for the holidays. Sophie is the president of the undergraduate geology club at UB and is involved in planetary geology outreach to school districts in the Buffalo area. Recently, Sophie was also a presenter at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in New Orleans, the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world.
