This afternoon we did a STEM engineering challenge thanks to Mrs. Allen for the idea. Teams had to make a tower for their apple using only the supplies given. Supplies included a paper bag, plate, cup, bowl, 3 pencils etc... Their goal was to get their tower as tall as they could. It was definitely a challenge for some as one student stated, "everyone had different ideas and it was hard to agree on what to do." They had to draw out their design first and build second. Many groups said their first designs didn't work out. Overall I think there was some frustration but a lot of fun with trying to keep their towers up. Team 6 won today with a total height of 60 cm. Awesome job everyone! Everyone even got an apple thanks to Kale who brought apples for his birthday treat!! Happy Birthday Kale!
