The Second Grade Science Night at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School was a special event that attracted aspiring young scientists from the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District. The event took place in the kindergarten wing and featured hands-on science investigations and STEM challenges. It was an exciting opportunity for students and their families to engage in scientific exploration together.

At the beginning of the night, each second grader received a lab coat and goggles, as well as a folder outlining their schedule for the evening. The students had the chance to color their lab coats as they listened to Principal Devra Small and science teacher Regina D’Orio kick off the event. They expressed gratitude to the families for attending and recognized the team of individuals who worked hard to make the event a success, including District Supervisor of Science K-12 Daniel Moy and members of the Oyster Bay High School National Science Honor Society.

Throughout the evening, second graders and their family members participated in five interactive science stations. They had the opportunity to explore the differences between fingerprints, build their own teddy bear zipline, test the capacity of water on a coin, design a hoop glider, and observe the interaction between liquid and solid substances. Each activity challenged students to use their problem-solving skills by making observations and asking questions.

Overall, the Second Grade Science Night at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School was a fun and educational experience for students and their families. It provided a hands-on learning opportunity that fostered curiosity and critical thinking skills in young scientists.
