Prairie STEM taught the eighth students at Northstar the basics of drones in which many of the students flew them for the first time. The students’ flying experience included obstacles to fly through. They flew them in the gym which was a perfect amount of space. Everyone had a great time.
Presenting for Alpha Delta Kappa in the Westside Community Schools ABC Building on September 26th, 2022
We presented for Alpha Delta Kappa educators. We shared robots, drones, VR/AR/Oculus, technology, STEM Kits, esports, and much more with the group. Everyone enjoyed Bingo’s appearance.
Students rotated between 3 stations. Their field trip to fly was cancelled and we were called in for a wow factor. Station 1 – Droneblocks, students programmed drones in a simulated environment (city and mars) Station 2 – VR students flew biplanes in a WWI Warfighter simulator, the settings abided by real world aerodynamics. Station […]
Prairie STEM had a booth at Hutchfest where we demonstrated Bingo, our robot dog extensively. We provided nearly 500 STEM Kits to the community and used our trailer as a Virtual Reality hub. Visitors signed in, learned about Prairie STEM and JuSTEMagine, were able to pet our dog, and play Beat Saber in Virtual Reality.
Prairie STEM had a booth at Afro Fest Omaha at Stinson Park, where we handed out 200 STEM Kits and provided a VR experience for visitors of all ages. The app we used primarily was Wander, which allowed users to visit anywhere in the world via Google Streetview 360. The intention was to allow people […]
We provided STEM Kits sponsored by Olsson Engineering, VR, robot soccer, Nathan’s Thor’s Hammer Demo with lots of magnet lessons, and Bingo, our robot dog to entertain students and families at a Union soccer game at Werner Park.
Prairie STEM had a booth on the top floor of the Highlander Accelerator building where we provided 5 Virtual Reality headsets to play Beat Saber as well as some other apps. Our new robotic dog, Bingo, happily greeted the community.
Second-grade students at Howard Kennedy had fun in hands-on lessons on pollination and seed dispersal in August and September.
The second graders created their own bees for the pollination lesson and observed how the body and legs of the bee are specially made to attract pollen. They flew their bees from a pollinated flower to another flower. We looked at some real pollen in the digital microscope. In the seed dispersal lesson, the students […]
It was a beautiful night for kids on September 3rd, 2021 for the Storm Chasers game at Werner Park. Prairie STEM could be found all around the park as part of a STEM scavenger hunt. Our Prairie STEM trailer was one of the first things people spotted when they walked in the front gate. Prairie […]
