STEAM Scoop

Fourth grade students recently tackled the problem of how to protect houses from natural and weather related disasters.  After studying the effects of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, landslides, floods, and hurricanes on the environment and man made structures, students created solutions to protect their homes from hurricane force winds and lava flows. 

While designing their solutions, the 4th grade engineers had constraints on the size of their solution and a budget that required them to carefully consider their material choices and amounts.  The best part of the project?  Testing their solutions!
