LARGO – About 300 parents and students were in attendance at Anona Elementary’s inaugural Family Science Extravaganza May 21.

Individual students and classes were able to showcase their science fair projects. These projects ranged in a variety of topics from physical to life science and engineering.

Anona’s own Duke Energy STEM Academy students demonstrated their robotic cars and rocket launcher. Other highlights of the evening were the dissection demonstration by parent and teacher Marta Bradley. Participants were able to get a closer look at the night sky using the Magna Telescope provided by local engineer Brian Crandall. Anona’s gifted students held an Egyptian Fair to culminate their learning.

Fifth grade teacher Bill Black, who was instrumental in organizing the event, was thrilled with the participation and excitement among the families.

Several local organizations were on site to give families some great hands-on experiences. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium allowed students the opportunity to touch one of Winter’s prosthetic tails. Mad Science excited audiences with its slime demonstration. McGough Nature Park taught students about its resident owls and bearded dragon. Other sponsors included Olive Garden, St. Pete College for Kids, and Great Explorations.

“The evening was filled with many great scientific learning opportunities,” said Stephanie Wager, assistant principal at Anona Elementary. “We are looking forward to an even bigger event next year!”
