 2023 Medina STEAM night is here - Friday April 28th, 2023

We are excited to bring you the sizzling STEAM night at Medina! We are having:

  1. Vendor presentations
  2. Hands-on Kids STEAM activities (NEW in 2023)
  3. Medina Students STEAM Ideas
  4. Egg Drop Challenge (5-6pm) - design and build a contraption to protect an egg from a high fall.

Below is a glimpse of what each activity has in store for you.


Vendor presentations

Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Location: Cafeteria


Post pandemic, finally vendors are back to Medina premises to show some great presentations and STEAM ideas. Take this opportunity to ask questions, hear from them firsthand!


Hands-on Kids STEAM activities (NEW in 2023)

Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Location: Gym



We are excited to introduce hands-on STEAM activities this year! We will be having stations for a variety of science kits to enable kids to make their own toys, charge up electricity through fruits, make colored solutions, and verify Newton's motion theory themselves. We will have kid friendly science kit stations monitored by a parent as kids indulge in real life science time by themselves or with their friends. It is our way of encouraging their creative minds into building our Future World! Nevertheless, have some fun!


Medina Students STEAM Ideas - Projects and Science Demos 


Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm

      • Heavier objects fall faster than light ones - how can force of gravity be used in the modern world.
      • WA waterfalls - can this motion be used to generate energy/electricity?
      • Windy Day - Can these winds be harnessed to run EV/Teslas?
      • Art- Many forms of modern art require STEAM concepts - pottery, geometrical art?
