Bridge Building!

Hi there,

3M engineers came by to help us understand what engineering is and how we can use it to solve problems.


Here are some problems you can solve.  We built bridges in class, see if you can build your own virtual bridge!

This one was a little trickier.  See what you think.

End of the year school survey

Hi folks,

As the year is winding down, our school wants to know how to make next year even better.  To do that we need your help in letting us know what we need to improve.  Here is a link to a survey that we will do in science class.  Your username and password will be given to you when you take the survey and are completely confidential.  I know we can do better, but despite teacher’s reputations we do not have eyes in the back of our heads.  We don’t see and hear everything that goes on so if it is troubling you, it should trouble us too but we will never know unless you share.




We are engineers

Hi there everybody!

We will dive into engineering in the coming weeks and in order to get a grip on what engineering really is… here is NASA to tell us all about it.  Also I found a clip about the difference between Speed and Velocity that made me laugh.
