Science Design Project

The Grade Twos finished off their Position and Motion Science unit with a project to design a vehicle that met certain criteria.  It has to have at least 4 wheels and 2 axles, have room for a driver and cargo and also roll down an incline plane.  The kids showed lots of creativity and determination to keep going when the wheels fell off and the tape kept sticking to itself!

STEM Design Kits

The Grade 2 class was very excited to try out our new STEM design kits today!  STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and is one of the new trends in education.  Students need to work together, create and solve problems.  The kits come with some idea cards but the kids enjoyed working with the pieces and finding out how they work together.
