Science Night gives Saluda parents, students chance for hands-on learning

Saluda Elementary School recently hosted Science Night, an evening of hands-on science activities facilitated by fifth graders and designed for students and families to complete together.

The stations included a range of activities covering various Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) topics. A grant provided by Duke Energy funded the science kits.

In addition to the science stations, the fifth graders displayed science projects they completed at home. The projects required about two months to complete and took students through the process of the Scientific Method.

“Science Night is one of our most popular events at the school,” stated Principal Cari Maneen. “The students enjoy sharing and showcasing their work and families have an opportunity to explore STEM stations with their children.”

Students in grades pre-kindergarten through fourth had interesting science projects on display. The students used their projects to share their new science learning and understanding with their families and friends.

“Science night is a fun way to celebrate our children’s learning!” stated one parent.
