Rainbow Engineers

03-15-2019School Happenings

First Grade made their own luck for Saint Patrick's Day. They built Rainbow Bridges that would hold the leprechaun and his pot of gold. The students needed to see how many pennies they could put in the cup before the leprechaun and his pot of gold fell off the bridge! The students problem solved how to evenly distribute the weight on the rainbow, ways to secure the pot of gold to the rainbow, how to make the pipe cleansers stronger by twisting them, and how to use suspension to make the bridge stronger. They had a great time! With all these brains, who needs luck?
