Family Challenge Night
On Thursday, March 2nd the OA Elementary and OA-BCIG Middle School Talented and Gifted program held their Family Challenge Night. The goal of Family Challenge Night is for families to participate in fun engineering design challenges. Students also have a chance to share about the talented and gifted program. The night is run by the 8th grade TAG students and their instructor, Mrs. Jensen. This year there were three rotations: a basketball challenge, a space lander challenge and sharing/trivia game. All challenges were STEM related. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEM activities create critical thinkers and encourage innovation. At the end of the night, all forty families gathered in the gym to award those who had been the most successful at the challenges. Families had a great time cooperating and working together to achieve their goals.
