Future STEM Stars Display their work at the Molin STEM showcase!

Strem Chemists are Impressed by Local Students Innovative Projects

On Friday, May 11th, Newburyport fourth- and fifth-graders from the Molin Elementary School proudly displayed their science and engineering projects at the city’s annual Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) showcase.   Over 100 students participated in the event.  Strem Chemists Dr. Al Barney and David Geissler attended the showcase to view the innovative work of our local students.   Strem is proud to continually support STEM efforts in the local schools.  We are so happy to see the children’s interest in STEM continue to grow.

“Their experiments were marvelous.  It was wonderful to see the students enthusiastically presenting their results”, commented Dave Geissler.   All students developed and worked on their projects at home or during their free time since this was not a school-required event.   A few of the many notable projects included, “Rube Goldberg Machine to Turn Book Pages” and a hotel design of “The Salty Schooner” that would be located on the Newburyport waterfront.   In addition to the fun “Building a Hover Chair from a Leaf Blower”, historical ”Rocket Powered Glider” based on a Soviet-era aircraft, and practical “Which brand of laundry detergent will remove stains best?” projects, some students also took on some serious current topics such as the “Effects of Bottom Trawling on the Ocean Floor”.  It was a wonderful event and we look forward to seeing what inventive ideas the children produce next year!

Let’s congratulate the Molin STEM Students for their outstanding performance!  For additional information on the showcase please see the Newburyport Daily News article!
