The first STEAM on the Knoll night held in April 2016 was an overwhelming success. Hundreds of children and adults engaged in a vast variety of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics activities. Participants built Rube Goldberg Machines ringing a simple bell in intricate and complicated steps. Some designed, built and launched parachutes carrying gummy bears from the second floor classrooms. Others braved the dark using leds and gel pens creating a crowd-sourced constellation in the backstage area. Outside students experimented with chemical reactions shooting pop-rockets into the air. The entire night was organized and operated by Oak Knoll teachers and staff to engage the whole family, and was held early in the evening to include children of all ages.
