Lincoln Avenue Elementary is a school with many STEM-related clubs that meet after school. One of them in particular is our Elementary Science Club.

This past year, we did Breakout EDU sessions. In this program we had to use clues to unlock many different types of locks and break into a box. Our sessions had different themes including Pirates of the Caribbean, Curse of the Pharaohs, Gods of Olympus, and Northmen: A Viking Saga. We had to work in teams and use all our talents to be the first ones to crack the codes!

Another thing that we did was to create junkyard robots. Junkyard robots are robots that are made of recycled materials. The only thing that is not recycled is the motor. We made the junkyard robots over a four-week period and took them home. We had to plan and create a prototype before we started construction. This was an awesome project!

Many students participate in the science club, which is offered to students in our building in kindergarten to fifth grade, and they all love this program. In fact, they are all mad about science!
