MILLBURN, NJ – hackMHS, a 29 hour-overnight event with workshops, and classes, focused on passing coding and programming knowledge along among students, was an overwhelming success in late May. However, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs, including hackMHS, are only partially funded by administration. MHS STEM clubs have partnered to run a monthly synergized event known as Millburn Splash, in an effort to fund themselves.
The students will not be canning or selling baked goods. Instead, on October 8th, they will play host to and teach local students, grades 1-8, a wide array of subjects. The program will include classes on drawing, math, robotics, chemistry, lava lamp creation, public speaking, and more.
Although Millburn Splash’s primary function is to raise money for hackMHS and other STEM programs, Abhinav Madahar, president of Splash says the fundraiser is also a great experience for the students and teachers.
“It’s a great experience for the children because they get to learn a lot. Its also a lot of fun for the high school students.”
Admission for the four hour event at the High School costs $20. Students pay and decide which classes to take at the door.
