STEM Night

Crone Middle School stepped up the science and tech on their end, hosting experts from those industries at their very own Stem Night.

Twenty-four professionals volunteered their time and their talents to present attention-grabbing sessions about their fields.

Students were allowed to set their own schedule, switching seminars every 25 minutes.

Some of these included shark-bots, the Naperville Police Department of Forensics, aqueduct challenges and North Central College’s Paul Brandt, demonstrating gases and combustion.

While everyone agreed they learned something new, the kids couldn’t agree on which one was their favorite.

“My favorite one was kid bricks because you got to do legos and they put a motor in it to make a carousel,” said Carson Gentry.

“My favorite was the police one,” said Alina Garber.

“We did the 3D glasses, it was called sound light forces and motion,” said Cloe Shane.

“Aqueduct challenge because we got to try to make a bunch of water go from one to the other,” said Jack Nash.

“The microphone room because it showed us that the mics are really durable,” said Emily Fletcher.

“My favorite was the liquid nitrogen one for NCC,” said Claire Corman.

“My favorite was the bricks for kids, it talks about centripetal force,” said Ryan Rabinovitch.
