Engineering isn’t just for adults, as some Corinth Elementary students recently proved!
Students in Mrs. Delaney’s second-grade class learned about the engineering design process in the classroom recently. The second-graders explored, designed and built a prototype with the goal of keeping a popsicle frozen outside for one hour.
The activity was part of the Project Lead The Way curriculum, which engages students in hands-on science and technology projects to help them develop problem-solving, critical thinking and other skills.
In the popsicle challenge, “students investigate and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties, including color and texture. They learn about states of matter and properties of materials including insulators and conductors,” according to the PLTW website.
