On Saturday, March 12th, Nassau County Math Teachers Association (NCMTA) and Nassau County Association of Math Supervisors (NCAMS) presented BRAIN STEAM AHEAD at the Rushmore Avenue School in Carle Place - a day of fun activities that incorporated science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Seven Garden City teachers and administrators, including Hemlock Principal Audrey Bellovin, volunteered to facilitate the activities. Locust teacher Millie Joyce was part of the committee involved with planning and executing the event. The event was attended by over 250 students, along with their parents. “Many Garden City students were among the attendees” said Mrs. Joyce. Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum & Instruction, Dr. Ted Cannone also stopped by to see the event. “You and your colleagues did a wonderful job with Brain STEAM ahead; that goes for your GC colleagues and those from elsewhere who helped make it all happen!” commented Dr. Cannone. “It was quite an event to see, and it appeared that everyone was cooperating, learning, and having fun. I loved seeing so many parents and children so enthusiastic about STEAM! It goes to show how much people value it. Well done!”



Just like in real competitions, students were able to test their skills at controlling simple robots. Just like in real competitions, students were able to test their skills at controlling simple robots.
