On March 12, St. Christopher School in Nashua gathered an impressive group of speakers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math for its annual STEM Day. After a keynote presentation by WMUR's meteorologist Kevin Skarupa, 14 guests addressed groups of students on topics such as forensic science, emergency medicine and CPR, water conservation and water treatment, air traffic control, helmet safety, computers and programming, sound engineering, electrical currents, chromatography, and structural engineering.
In the afternoon, students in grades 3 through 6 attended an additional program presented by FIRST Robotics Team 811 of Bishop Guertin High School who brought their current competition robot to show off its moves. In the evening, families returned to the school for the school-wide STEM Fair. Over the past month, each classroom from PreKindergarten through 6 conducted a science project on a specific topic and developed displays of their results. The evening's fair allowed students to show their work to their parents and families in the classrooms. In addition, members of the school's STEM Committee provided a number of exploratory stations throughout the school with additional hands-on scientific experiments and equipment.
