South Colby Elementary School hosting STEM night April 20

PORT ORCHARD — South Colby Elementary School is hosting a STEM night April 20 from 5:30-7 p.m., preceded by a dinner at 4:45 p.m.

There will be 20 different challenges for students and their families to engage in, try and solve, learn and have fun, according to principal Joe Riley.

Last year, more than 150 people showed up to participate. Riley said it’s similar to an old-fashioned carnival where different rooms have different engineering challenges. It all culminates with the students and families gathering in the gym and designing roller coasters with the different materials.

“It’s a cool thing families can do together,” Riley said. “It ends up being a really fun, exciting night.”

The event is open to all South Colby students and families.
