CURRENT/UPCOMING EVENTS FOR STUDENTS

 

 

Students and Teachers in Action!!

Robotics for Students!

Students came to UCA on February 28th for an exciting time learning basic coding and robotics using the LEGO NXT robot software. Pictures from the event can be found here!

6th and 7th grade students from Greenbrier school visited Stem Institute. They saw the Math and Science resources that are available for their teachers to check out for free. Students were engaged in STEM activities. They used proscope to look at microscopic structures, conducted a chemical reaction experiment and separated colors of a black ink using chromatography.
