No STEM event would be complete without Oobleck, a substance that is both liquid and solid, and serves as a great lure to attract young future scientists to the STEM field. Pictured is C.H. Campbell PTA volunteer Joclyn Bolling, as she presents the science experiemtn to fourth graders Teagan McFarland, Ava Negy, Brooklyn Nelson and Faheem Moonda.

She was one of about a dozen PTA volunteers who showed up at the school to staff a variety of stations each day at the school. The week started with the kindergartners on Monday and saw a different grade take part each day, wrapping up with the fourth grade on Friday.

Among some of the hands-on experiments were: learn making tinfoil boats and salt volcanos to a giant Minecraft game. Students also learned about the evolution of video games and took part in an interactive display featuring a flight simulator.
