WOODLAND PARK, NJ - Students at Charles Olbon Elementary School recently enjoyed an interactive assembly sponsored by its Home & School Association.

Presented by Mobile Ed Productions, Inc. the STEAM Museum turned the gymnasium into a state-of-the-art hands-on children's museum focused on STEAM education (science, technology, engineering, art and math).

There were numerous interactive stations set up, manned by parent volunteers, where the children would rotate and explore various activities such as 3D printing, a friction racing station, programmable robotics, foam block building, and gears.

In addition, students got to see a cutting-edge humanoid robot in action. The NAO robot kicked off the visit to the STEAM Museum, where he introduced himself and wide-range of human-like abilities such as sitting down and getting back up.
