In STEAM Class last week, Noah built a table and chairs. Alex and Dawson built a tower and when creating the roof they watched for spots where the tower was weak and supported it throughout the whole process. It was quite the balancing act!
Mr. Werner stopped by Ms. Houseman’s 5th Grade STEM class last week to explore how technology has changed and what changes could come in the future due to motivated students like them. Film strips, floppy disks, Speak & Spells, vintage Technology magazines, and discussions about Christa McCaullife and the Space Shuttle program were all topics of discussion. Students watched Archival footage of Ronald Reagan’s address to the nation after the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster where he stated, “The future doesn’t belong to the faint hearted; it belongs to the brave.”

A drawing had Mr. Goodall taking three bites of the concoction and Mrs. Thompson taking four bites.
