TMFD Participates in STEM-tastic Fair

Tuesday, May 13, 2014   On Saturday May 3rd the TMFD participated in the First STEM-tastic Festival at the Hommocks Middle School.  The event was hosted by the STEM Alliance of Larchmont-Mamaroneck and was a grassroots half day festival of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).   Each of Mamaroneck’s six schools -- including students and staff members -- were involved in one way or another with this hands-on community-wide collaboration featuring local STEM experts, workshops, professional attractions, a community exhibit hall, STEM vendors, and Cool Career Roundtables lead by experts from various disciplines.

The TMFD demonstrated many different ways in which math, engineering and science are used in fire fighting and rescue operations.  Everything from mechanical advantage when lifting a victim using pulleys to the mathematical formulas used to pump water at precise pressures were demonstrated in a hands on approach for the participants.
