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!

Building with Cans!

During our “Christmas Mother Can Collection” season, each class took some tape and marked off a place on the floor for the students to build with cans!  Here in Mrs. Locher’s class, the students built a “swimming pool” out of cans!  I believe the large can of “Beans” could be a diving board!  During our school-wide “Can Assembly” Mrs. Overman produced a slide show of all of the different structures the students built K-5!  This was a great “School Wide” STEM connection!!!  Great job Maybeury!Photo Dec 02, 11 26 11 AM
