Using paper, glue, markers and recycled items, fourth-graders at Riley Avenue Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District engineered a variety of inventions as part of a project held to honor Earth Day and enhance STEAM – science, technology, engineering, art and math – skills.

The STEAM challenge was conducted in conjunction with the Town of Riverhead Recreation Department, which invited the students to envision, design and build an invention to showcase in its Future Engineers Gallery at the George Young Community Center on April 21. 

In addition to Earth Day, the exercise supported National Library Week and the district’s STEAM initiatives and Maker Movement.
