STEM: Engineering

This week our class focused on the ENGINEERING aspect of STEM. Not only did the kids learn to build using 3-dimensional objects (and shapes), they also learned to find problem-solving insight from their build attempts in order to make future builds more successful.

We call this PERSEVERANCE and GRIT. You can call it LIFE SKILLS.

So what SHAPE do you think it was that the kids found out was the sturdiest? 

Do you think it was a CUBE?!

It turns out the PYRAMIDS are the strongest shape to build with! Good job!
