The 5th grade engineering club has worked diligently every Thursday after school for 6 weeks to problem solve one of two possible tasks.




The two tasks they could choose from were a restraint system in a vehicle for an egg or a Rube Goldberg machine that either could pop a balloon or move a marble into a container. The cumulative event was a wonderful celebration of their projects.




The engineering design process was followed so therefore students were to ask questions about the tasks, brainstorm, and with a team, collaborate on a plan, create a prototype, test, and improve it.





Lots of creativity, knowledge of science concepts and determination was observable throughout the practices.



Target I- Proficiency-Based Personalized Learning: Students create original works as a means of personal  or group expression.

Target 3- Flexible Learning Environments: Students engage in answering authentic questions and solving problems in collaborative settings.
