STEAM Night Promotes Hands-on Learning

Hiawatha Elementary School students and their families participated in STEAM Night on Feb. 7. The evening was full of hands-on science, math and engineering stations.

Students created marble tracks, pyramids out of plastic cups, toothpick structures, Play-Doh fractions and built with Legos. The Sachem High School Robotics Team, made up of students from East and North, gave the younger students and their parents a glimpse into the district’s robotics program. One of the highlights of the evening was the remote-controlled robot that pulled students around the gym in a cart.

Guest Speaker is a Catch with Hiawatha Fifth Grade

New York Jets offensive lineman Greg Senat stepped off the field to visit the fifth grade at Hiawatha Elementary School. Senat, a graduate of Elmont High School and former student of Hiawatha Principal Joseph Watson, spoke with students about making healthy choices and a day in the life of an NFL player.

Senat stressed the importance of taking school seriously, keeping positive people around you and persevering through tough times. He told students stories of his NFL draft experience and playing with the Kansas City Chiefs during their Super Bowl win in 2019. He went through his game-day routine and encouraged students to find routines in their everyday lives that work best for them.

Throughout the visit, students were eager to ask questions and get a glimpse into an NFL player’s life. Senat was happy to take photos with students and sign autographs. The interactive visit inspired students to be the best versions of themselves and follow their dreams.
