Community Park had its fourth-annual, all-school STEM Expo at the end of April.
During the all-day event, students viewed a total of nineteen different presentations, done by parents, Princeton High School Students, and community members.
The day focused on hands-on learning (including making actual paper with Ms. Mulrooney in the science lab), augmented reality with iPads focusing on frog development and the solar system, as well as some personal expertise presented by Dr. Helen Rose and Dr. Louis Tesoro of The Pediatric Group (“What’s Exciting Being a Pediatrician?”) and a special session on prosthetic legs with parent Danny Freund.
Kachina Allen of the Princeton Baby Lab at Princeton University presented a session on illusions involving the body; Alex Glaser, Associate Professor at the Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University offered students an opportunity to experience immersive virtual reality; Marci Meixler, Professor, School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, Rutgers University presented a session on how to create your own backyard compost; and Adam Wolf, Chief Scientist at Arable Labs, Inc. presented a session on exploring the natural world through the visible and invisible light spectrum.
We are grateful to our sponsor, the CP PTO, the many presenters who generously gave their time and expertise, and to Mr. and Mrs. Lerman, who make this entire event possible every year by organizing, coordinating and hosting.
