Mrs. Youngs’ 5th Grade Class Learns About Engineering

Submitted by jan.grotegut on

The 5th Graders in Mrs. Youngs’ class learned engineering skills by testing their ability to build a large tower. The students built these to introduce STEM skills and connected this to the Jeddah tower that is going to try to break the record of the highest building in the world. They had to develop and use models and construct explanations or arguments from evidence to erect their tower.  They will also discuss engineering failures from around the world and will apply the knowledge they learned to compare to their towers… what could they have done differently?
