STEM teams of third, fourth, and fifth grade students made an exciting trek to the University of Memphis to learn more about engineering and to compete in engineering tasks. Mrs. Adam’s team constructed a bridge, which held 35 pounds for the required 3 minutes. Two teams flash built index card structures: one team’s held 28 books and the other team’s structure held 34 books. Mrs. Nork lead a team of fifth graders to create an egg drop construction that survived two drops without cracking! It was a successful learning experience in which the teams represented BCES very well!
