Girls STEM Day at the Discovery Station!

This past Thursday, we had a very exciting science day.  Volvo Group, which has a local Hagerstown site, sponsored a  girls’ science day at our local Discovery Station for grades 1st – 8th to encourage interest in science and technology.  Volvo group team members organized the activities and made sure everyone had a team member.  The youngest girls built cardboard cannons, 3rd and 4th graders made disk launchers, 5th and 6th graders made ballistas, and 7th and 8th graders made a circuit based radio.  After these projects were complete, the students had time to explore the exhibits and enjoy the Discovery Station.

See our photo gallery for many exciting photos from this event.  We would like to extend our thanks to the Volvo Group for sponsoring this day and the Discovery Station for hosting this wonderful event.  The students enjoyed the experience and came away with an excitement for science and technology.
