Over a thousand Iron Range 6th graders attend STEM showcase

HIBBING, MN – Around 1,800 6th graders from the Iron Range participated in the 6th annual STEM showcase

On Friday, 6th graders from across the Iron Range had fun with science in Hibbing at the annual STEM showcase.

Nearly 1,800 students from 26 different schools attended the event.

Students who came had the chance to interact with science demonstrations ranging from walking on water, launching paper rockets, controlling robots, firing an air canon, and even watching a nitrogen explosion

Organizers of the event said that this event is a great opportunity to show students science beyond what they learn from a textbook.

“These kids are getting ready to go into high school and kind of pick an area of study they want to go into. It gives a good name for science. It’s not just out of the textbook. It’s hands on; it’s fun. There’s a lot of fun activities and even careers that you can pursue on the iron range or anywhere through science and technology,” said Krissy Warwas, STEM Showcase Coordinator with the Range Regional Council.
