STEM in 3rd Grade!
Students in third grade are reading “The City of Ember” as a class. Students were challenged to become pipework engineers and create a pipeline system that made water move a total distance of two feet. As it is in the book, students were given very little supplies to work with. They had two Styrofoam cups, five straws, and two feet of tape. In the end, they were successful if they moved more than half of their water from the starting cup to the ending cup. It took a few tries for some groups, but all students were able to complete this challenge. Great job being problem-solvers, third grade!
