LEWISTON, Idaho – Lewiston third graders will once again explore the worlds of science, technology, mathematics, and engineering at the annual All Systems Go! day at Lewis-Clark State College. On Friday, November 21, every third grade student in the Lewiston School District will have the opportunity to visit the LCSC campus for a day of activities designed to stimulate their interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Mathematics, and Engineering) learning. The activities are interactive, hands-on, and fun for all involved.
Faculty from the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics coordinate with teachers from the Lewiston School District to make this event happen. Students spend the entire school day visiting learning and activity stations in biology, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, and physics. The Palouse Discovery Science Center also gets involved, with an activities station on electricity. To complement the learning stations, students also learn about using science notebooks to record their observations and thoughts on what they’ve seen and done, and apply new scientific vocabulary.
Along with volunteers from the LCSC Natural Sciences and Mathematics faculty and the Lewiston School District, the event would not be possible without the help of over 40 student volunteers comprised of STEM majors and the LCSC Ambassador Honor Society.
