The Second Annual STEM Night is set for Monday, March 18, from 6-8 pm at Gordonsville High School. 

Students in grades 5 through 8, along with their parents, are encouraged to discover the fun of science and technology through various stations posted throughout the school building.

Coordinators Lynn Brown and Lacey Williams paired with various organizations such as TTU Nursing, TCAT, GHS Hosa, Interact and Engineering Club to create an event that allows students to dissect technology, make bouncy balls, create dry ice bubbles and more. 

There will also be a photo booth, green screen, art murals and animals brought in by Edgar Evins State Park. 

Yard Birds’ Food Truck will offer a wide choice of easy-to-eat foods. Hamburgers, wraps, tacos, and meals will all be available during STEM Night. Visit the company’s FaceBook page, YardBirds Food Truck, to find menus, locations and prices. 

Yard Birds will be donating 10 percent of their sales during STEM Night to Gordonsville schools.

To earn community service hours, high school students can volunteer to set-up, clean and work booths during STEM Night from 4:30-8. Sign up sheets are available on CTE teachers’ doors.
