Huber Ridge fifth grade student Tyler Severe experiments with movement during the Starry Night Learning Festival.
More than 1,100 people enjoyed the Nationwide Children’s Starry Night Family Learning Festival last Sunday. Organized by the Westerville Partners for Education (WPE), this year’s event theme, “Movement,” brought together a variety of hands-on learning activities from protozoan motion to motors to sports medicine, dance, and more. Local businesses and organizations generously offered exhibits and programs, including Westerville North Science students and the district’s Fab Lab. Educators also enjoyed an “Educator Preview Hour,” connecting teachers with exhibitors to seed classroom collaboration. A number of Westerville students also volunteered at the event, making it a truly homegrown success. WPE expressed thanks to all of the event sponsors, exhibitors, vendors, volunteers, and attendees.
