James A. Dever School Hosts Successful Family STEAM Night

April 5, 2024

James A. Dever Elementary School welcomed students and parents from grades K-6 to its annual Dever Family STEAM Night. Organized by Mrs. Christy Taveira in collaboration with the school’s dedicated teaching staff, the event proved to be a resounding success, offering families a delightful evening filled with exploration and discovery.

STEAM Night provided a unique opportunity for families to engage in a wide range of hands-on activities and explore various STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) phenomena together. Under the guidance of enthusiastic educators, both parents and students had the chance to participate in an array of interactive experiments and projects, fostering a love for learning and innovation. 

Some of the highlights of the evening included activities such as building and floating tin foil boats, constructing marble runs, experimenting with icy art crystals, designing and testing parachutes, coding with parents, creating catapults, and exploring the principles of physics with GraviTrax. 

We extend our sincere gratitude to Christy Taveira, Nicole Arcario, Jennifer Skehan, Michael Whelan, Janis Boremski, Meghann McCabe, Kalie Mills, Rachel North, Lauren Dooley, Caroline Nickels, Marissa Nicoletti, Andrea Colletti, and Ashley Garry for their hard work and commitment to making the event a memorable experience for all attendees. 

STEAM Night is an example of James A. Dever Elementary School’s ongoing commitment to providing innovative and engaging educational opportunities for its students and families. By fostering a collaborative and hands-on approach to learning, the school continues to inspire curiosity, creativity, and a passion for STEAM subjects among its community members.
