SCHODACK - Students were on the move at Maple Hill Middle School on Thursday.
They moved from classroom to classroom for a hands-on STEM experience.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math.
The purpose of this STEM day was to help prepare students for 21st century. Careers and organizers say the kids had fun with it.
“The kids love it. We had an event here last night and a couple elementary school students who were coming over today, they knew about it in advance, they were excited about it, cheering about it. Telling me how much they can't wait to get over here,” said James Derby, the school’s principal.
Derby says with more jobs focusing on STEM skills, it's important to build these lessons into the school curriculum.
