Our Lady of Mercy Regional School’s STEM club participated in this year’s iConnect Challenge at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City.

Teacher Marianne Wachtel, who coordinates the program with Jennifer Wagner, said the Cutchogue school was the only Long Island elementary school to participate in the contest and competed against several junior and senior high school students.

Students were asked to discover an educational app that relates to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), then create a PSA video and tutorial to promote the app. The videos were then presented in the Cradle of Aviation’s Imax theater, Ms. Wachtel said.
