Students gathered at Creekview Elementary on Thursday evening to take part in engineering night. Children and their families met local engineers and had the chance to explore the work they do in their fields.
Staff at Creekview organized the inaugural event for those in attendance. Creekview Principal Jim Thomas explained that engineering night was part of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program. He stated that there are many jobs available in these fields and that staff at the school wanted students to have the chance to explore possible future careers.
“It seems like the kids had fun,” Thomas commented.
Thomas said that the school hopes to host family engineering night in the years to come.
