|Ms. Scott's class test their Straw Rockets!|
4th Grade Engineer Design Teams:
3rd Grade students begin (safely) testing out a variety of Straw Rocket models. Does the length of the rocket matter? What about the diameter of the rocket? Which travels farthest? Which travels in a straight line? They are exploring all of these concepts!
Before being given a template for the helicopter, students tried to make something that fell in the same way as a maple seed.
|Does a helicopter with one or three paperclips stay in the air the longest?|
Kindergarten and 1st Grade students explore Rolling Things. In these challenges they determine the impact that weight and ramp height have on the movement of an object.
|Ms. Kelly's Class is ready to "Crash and Bash"!|
|Mrs. Dorsey's students also "Crash and Bash"|
If you are an engineer, find any of these activities particularly exciting or just want to support our students and have the time, please email me and come volunteer on any of our Think Tank days!
Until next time,
