LUC Students help with the Goudy Elementary Family STEM Night

LUC Students help with the Goudy Elementary Family STEM Night

Elementary and Special Education majors and Professor Lara Smetana conclude the spring semester with a fun-filled night of science, technology, engineering and math at the annual William C. Goudy Technology Academy’s Family STEM Night. Teacher candidates in Smetana’s TLSC 231 course spent their semester working alongside 4th grade students in this CPS partner school’s unique elementary engineering lab. They returned to host an engaging family design challenge combining art and engineering. Goudy elementary students and their families used an engineering design process to design mechanisms and create imaginary critters with moving parts. A few favorite examples are shown off above!
