On March 19, 2014, VLUS celebrated our science and math programs with VLUS STEM Night. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Madhvi Patil’s science singers opened the night with a collection of science songs from the Science Oratorio, “Powers of Ten.” Many different activities were set up, including a 3D printer, LEGO Mindstorms, trying to make a helium-filled bag touch the ceiling, and a planetarium in the gym. The night ended with talks from parents and teachers about their STEM careers. STEM Night was a great opportunity for kids of all ages to witness the uses of amazing technology. While the 3D printer made VLUS logos out of plastic, students programmed Mindstorms NXT robots and calculated their speeds. A good time was had by all at VLUS’ second STEM Night.
