STEM Students Present Projects at Board Meeting

WPCS Students Present Bridges to Prosperity Projects

In September, sixth and seventh grade STEM students learned about Bridges to Prosperity.  They were given the challenge of constructing a bridge across the Chameau River in Haiti for villagers to safely cross. Students used the Engineering Design Process to successfully complete the challenge. They were given a small scale mock-up of the land as well as background knowledge on shapes that make structures strong. Student bridges were voted on by peers and others received a teacher’s vote. These students presented to the WPCS Board of Directors on Tuesday September 25th, 2018.  The students taught us that you do not have to have a masters in engineering to design amazing ways to help others.
