Immanuel Lutheran in Palatine will hold a “STEAM” night for the entire community on Thursday, January 25 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. STEAM is an acronym for “Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.” The evening provides an opportunity for children and families to explore a variety of STEAM topics through hands-on and problem solving activities. Busy Brains Children’s Museum and Mathnasium of Palatine will once again add to the festivities through their exhibits and math challenges.
STEAM Night introduces children to creative and critical thinking skills via entertaining, hands-on activities. Immanuel Lutheran School’s classrooms — preschool through 8th grade — will be the site for a variety of different experiments and challenges all based around the STEAM framework. Look for sensory tables, kitchen chemistry, catapults, and an assortment of activities that will surprise and delight children and adults alike. As an added bonus, all children are eligible to enter a drawing…prizes include STEAM-related toys.
“We are so excited to be able to invite the families of the community to come and ‘play’ with us once again, to experience STEAM hands-on. Families are also invited to learn more about Immanuel and meet our awesome teachers,” says Immanuel Principal Delaine Schiestel.
Immanuel’s teachers and staff will be stationed at the exhibits and around the building to explain the different activities and to answer any questions. STEAM night is for preschoolers through 8th graders and their parents/caregivers. Bring the whole family for a night of exciting, interactive learning!
