STREAM Night at Maybeury Elementary School

IMG_0989 IMG_0977 IMG_0957We took the Marshmallow Challenge at STREAM night on Wednesday, June 10th.  We had over 80 families join us for the challenge.  20 spaghetti noodles, 1 yard of tape, 1 yard of string and a marshmallow needs to balance on top of the structure that is engineered.  What a great way to work together as a family to solve a different type of problem, an Engineering Problem!

Are you “Eggstraordinary?”

Miss Traynham and Mrs. Goodwin’s class teamed up once again for an “Eggstraordinary” Design Challenge.  They were given 25 straws, an envelope, a sheet of paper, 3 feet of tape, and 3 feet of yard. The kids were also able to use scissors and a pencil.  We then dropped the eggs to see if the designs were enough to protect them.  Look below for the results!  The designs were varied. Some worked and some did not.  It was a lesson of collaboration and we were able to observe what materials were necessities in creating a successful design!
