The STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Mathematics) Club at Henry Leavenworth Elementary celebrated the end of their first session by hosting a school-wide assembly to demonstrate potential energy converted to kinetic energy. They built vegetable racers and competed for most distance. Naomi Alau thrilled the crowd with a run that went all the way across the stage and rammed into the wall at the other end. Naomi also developed a racer during the course of the session that went farther than all of her teammates with a distance of 11.73 meters. Way to go Naomi! You are an Engineer in the making.
