Hurricane Elementary’s ‘Cardboard Carnival’ shows STEM education in action

HURRICANE — Fifth-graders at Hurricane Elementary School showed off their unique cardboard creations Thursday night at the school’s “Cardboard Carnival,” an evening dedicated to the four academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering and math, otherwise known as STEM education.

The “Cardboard Carnival” is an annual event that fifth-grade students participate in and run, said Paul Tauiliili, STEM teacher at Hurricane Elementary. The carnival is the culmination of a weeks-long STEM lesson on magnets.
