This year’s STEAM Night was easily the best STEAM Night ever. Great turn out and most people stayed the whole time!
Part of what made this year so great were all of the special exhibits we had. Thank you to:
- Shana, for the awesome (gross) ;) handwashing exhibit, - Kim, for doing math talks & starting conversations with parents about math! - Trevor, for bringing the Jr. High Drone Club experience to Pioneer- Quincy Public Library, for showing kids all the ways they can learn about STEM at the library!
- Apple STEM Network for coming to promote STEM Careers - QHS Computer Science kids for helping run our coding station - Rep. Tom Dent for spending the whole evening with us!
This fall, in collaboration with many (including former principal Nik Bergman, current principal Ellen Hopkins, and the Pioneer PVC), we purchased 15 tubano drums and a ngoma (large leader drum) for children to use in expanding their musical enrichment for years to come. These were primarily purchased with Jog-A-Thon and other fundraiser monies, as well as contributions from building funds and a match from our PVC. Thank you SO much to everyone who helped make this happen, especially our wonderful community. Without your fundraising help, this simply would not have happened. These instruments are a great example of what our dollars can do to help our kids’ learning!
