July 19The STEM Program at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley not only helps to prevent summer learning loss, it shows kids that learning can be exciting and interactive. Mr. Ceev, the STEM Coordinator at the Boys & Girls Club of Menasha hosted an Egg Drop contest to teach Club members about gravity and to challenge them to create a safety device to prevent the egg from breaking. They used plastic bags, yarn, tape, glue, paper towel, egg cartons, eggs, and scissors. Who would have thought science could be so much fun!
