Third Grade Designers and Engineers
Working in small groups, the boys have decided upon the "product" to make, and developed a design. Now, through trial and error, they are testing their creations.
This project is a perfect example of the way STEAM projects thoroughly engage our boys in the engineering and design process, as they come to appreciate the iterative nature of the discipline.
