20582737201_16714b4095_zOPEF staff shared Geared Up LEGO engineering and VEX Robotics with Holmes students at the school’s STEM Night. The kids were so engaged, building cars and driving bots and learning how much fun science can be! Each year, all Holmes 3rd graders participate in the Geared Up program, and kids have the opportunity to participate in OPEF VEX Robotics when they get to Brooks Middle School.

This great event was put on by the school and the Holmes School PTO. In addition to robots and LEGO engineering, the evening featured math games, as well as demonstrations on how iPads, smart boards and other technology are being used in classrooms.
