Our STEAM Night 2021 will be fully virtual this year with lots of fun activities that you can do in the comfort of your own home, and with supplies that you will likely already have around the house. Please take a look at each activity and think about which ones interest you.


Registration links will be shared with parents and students via Google Classroom and by email. Students must be signed in to their Maʻemaʻe Google Account to be able to register. Registration will be open from 2/17 to 2/24. No late registrations will be accepted. Students will be notified of their schedule during the week of 3/22 in class and via Google Classroom. Distance Learning students will only receive notices in Google Classroom.


Almost all of the activities can be done with things that you likely already have at home. For the few activities that do require some special supplies, those will be sent home with students during the week of 3/22. Distance Learning students will be able to do a drive-thru pick-up of those packets on 3/19. Please check email for announcements about the packet pick-.
