RANDOLPH, NJ- Randolph Middle School families enjoyed a night full molecular gastronomy, fun experiments and presentations at the third annual Family STEAM Night on May 3.

Students made presentations about different STEAM topics. Eighth graders Andrew Berthier and Matthew Blutig encouraged families who visited their table to switch to organic fertilizer, which will make plants healthy and strong, they said. Organic fertilizers are also renewable, biodegradable, sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Across the school, students learning coding, taught their parents about virtual reality and even made their own ice cream in a delicious controlled experiment.
