STEM Saturday! – Blowing Down Houses

Students in Mrs. Wills’ and Mrs. Jones’ kindergarten classes have been learning more about the engineering design process through their Project Lead the Way module.

This time, students were read the story of the Three Little Pigs.  Students had to design and build a house out of given materials which would withstand the forces of a wolf.  The big bad wolf is a very strong fan.

Check out the slideshow below to see how they did!
