STEM Corner

5th grade is beyond excited to begin working with Mr. Forkin on our STEM project.  We have pledged to undertake the NASA Youth STEM Challenge for the remainder of our school year!  We will be designing our very own Rover!  This week in class students began their prototyping and testing.  As we move forward, all students to bring a copybook, pen/pencil, scissors, metric ruler (which we have plenty of in the lab), and eventually a math compass.  It is so exciting to see our school partnering with NASA for this challenge.  Please check back for updates, and don't forget to stop by Facebook and Instagram to see the Knights in action!
