Hiawatha STEAM Fun

LAKE RONKONKOMA, NY (OnSachem.com / OnTownMedia.com) — The science of sound was on display during a recent activity at Hiawatha Elementary School in Lake Ronkonkoma.

Fifth grade students in Tara Sigilo’s class rotated between five stations in the school’s STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) room.

During the expansive lesson on music and sound, students visited stations that included activities such as building a harp with straws and rubber bands, determining which surface causes the greatest vibration with a tuning fork, and hitting a drum with different drum sticks to see which material would cause the most disruptive vibration.

The lesson served as a creative opportunity for students to explore vibration, reverberation and sound waves through engaging hands-on design challenges and observation-based tasks.

Hiawatha Elementary School is located at 97 Patchogue-Holbrook Rd. in Lake Ronkonkoma. The school is part of the Sachem Central School District.
