STEM in Action
Eighth grade students integrated science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) principles to design and create prototypes under the direction of their physics teacher, Mrs. Joanne Arnold. The students built robotic cars using fuel cells and the process of hydrolysis as a source of kinetic energy. They also constructed toy boats using various types of energy to move across a 2-meter pool. In addition to these projects, the building of rockets introduced students to aerospace and aerodynamic design while studying Newtonian Law.

With the assistance of Ms. Pellen, Cooperative Extension Educator from Rutgers University, the students constructed robotic arms to demonstrate pneumatic construction and engineering design processes. Through outreach and integrated programs, our STEM curriculum prepares students to excel in their advanced high school classes and future careers.
