Students work on a project during the fourth annual STEAM Discovery Night on Sept. 17 at Liberty Elementary School.

Liberty Elementary School held its fourth annual STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) Discovery Night on Sept 17. The event was coordinated by Kimberly Boucher and Science Club members. More than 800 people participated.

STEAM Discovery Night is designed to enrich science learning for both parents and students. Each exhibit provided hands-on experiments or presentations geared toward elementary students. Activities included creating giant bubbles, pendulum art, gas balloons, instant snow, creating music with fruit and building launch rockets. Students who visited more than five exhibits qualified for a free dress-down day and were entered into a drawing for science prizes.

The following vendors volunteered their time to make the event possible: Coastal Electric Cooperative, J.C. Lewis Ford, Keep Liberty Beautiful, Liberty County Humane Shelter, Mary Kahrs Warnell Forest Education Center, Midway Police Department, Rick Faircloth with Drone Flyte, Savannah Children’s Museum, Society of Women in Engineering, and the UGA Extension Office 4-H.
