Young Women’s Leadership Academy develop future scientists during STEAM E-Day

Students at Young Women’s Leadership Academy enjoyed an eventful day, full of learning, teamwork, and cooperation during a STEAM E-Day.

The 6th – 9th grade students participated in campus-wide enrichment activities as they rotated among a variety of projects that included robotics, science experiments, and hands-on activities. This enabled them to engage in activities, extending their knowledge of scientific concepts.

The activities included chromatography, designing their own race car using recyclables, and a homopolar motor, to name a few. 

In the chromatography activity, the students used coffee filters with colored markers dipped in water to explore the rate at which different colors separate.

In the race car activity, students were given recyclable materials such as water bottles, rubber bands, balloons, and skewers to design a functional, self-powered race car. Lastly, for the homopolar motor, they were given magnets, an AA battery, and copper wire.

The objective was to bend the copper wire in order to create a rotating conductor around a fixed axis.

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
