1st place - Icefall
2nd place - Devil's Rage
3rd place - Leaning Tower of Pisa

Thank you to all the parents that stayed after school so the kids could extend their building time and to the judges who came out to support us.
As we delve into our Makerspace classroom theme, we will embark on a great hands-on lesson--making paper roller coasters!
This activity provides us:
Over the course of the next five weeks, we will learn about force and motion concepts and apply them throughout this project. Working in teams, students will plan and design a paper roller coaster. At the end of five weeks, we will test our paper roller coasters during the Paper Roller Coaster Challenge!
