Science night equates to learning

Doris Rashad and Annika Rasha, an eighth grader at Mountain View Middle School, work to construct a marshmallow structure during the school’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math event Tuesday night. For the fourth year, the school has held the event close to Pi Day, which happened on March 14 and is a national celebration of the mathematical figure pi, an infinite number that starts with 3.14. The windstorm and other scheduling conflicts led the school to delay this year’s event, which encourages parents and students to spend the evening engaged in hands-on activities illustrating mathematical and scientific principles. “There is a little bit of everything, a lot of science and a little bit of art,” said Kaharina Diaz, eighth grade math teacher who coordinates the event. Businesses donated pizza and pies and gift cards given away by raffle for those students who participated in the learning activities. (Lisa Dunlap Photo)
