    Thank you Sycamore Ridge families for making our STEAM+ Premier Night a huge success. Families were able to enjoy hands-on activities that included: testing your engineering ability by building the tallest freestanding spaghetti tower, writing code that resulted in a video game sent to your phone, colliding art and engineering to create a doodle machine, using QR codes to interact with different fitness stations and tinkering in the Tinker station.
