With more than two dozen hands-on activities from making silicone wafers and spaghetti towers to becoming a human spirograph and learning the science of baking, students in grades 4-8 have lots to look forward to at the Sixth Annual STEAM Fun Night at Schoharie High School on Feb. 2.

The science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM)-focused event is free and open to students from the Duanesburg and Schoharie school districts, providing an opportunity for them to share in fun, educational activities. Sessions will begin at 3 p.m. and run until 5 p.m. at Schoharie High School at 136 Academy Drive in Schoharie.
