Stallings' Science Night

Kelvin, the 2015 official "spokebot" of the North Carolina Science Festival

Stallings' Parents and Community Members, thank you for your participation in our 2015 North Carolina Science Night. Stallings Elementary School hosted a science night on March 26, 2015.  Over 250 students and family members participated in hands-on science activities involving technology, math, and engineering activities during the two hour event.  All activities were designed to engage children and families in science exploration.  Students and families visited 12 stations where they completed exciting activities such as, making squishy goo, invisible ink, shooting rockets, building marshmallow towers and marble rollercoasters.  They studied their own fingerprints, planted seeds in a garden glove, made a harmonica, and a dominant and recessive gene bracelet.  

Stallings’ was excited to be selected to participate in the Duke Energy Science Night which is an initiative of the North Carolina Science Festival. The North Carolina Science Festival is a two week celebration of science with events statewide.  Stallings was one of 125 schools across the state selected to host a Duke Energy Science Night this year.  The mission of the NC Science Festival is to inspire future generations of scientists.  

Be sure and take a look at our Stallings’ Elementary Facebook page for over 40 photographs showcasing our Science Night.  Thanks again for your support and we are thrilled at the success of our event.  See you next year for the 2016 Stalling’s Science Night.
