Science, technology, engineering and mathematics, commonly known as STEM, was the focus for Hickory Creek’s Family STEM Night. Organizer and teacher Stormy Hall said, “The event is a great opportunity for students and their families to explore the different areas of STEM. We tried to offer many different activities for each area which included activities created by teachers and a variety of visitors from our community.” In an effort to send the message of the importance of the STEM fields, several hands-on and minds-on activities were available for guests to enjoy.
