Grade four has been studying about simple machines in science class. The students were given the task of designing and building a functioning "gumball" machine that had at least: one lever, one incline plane, one wheel & axle, one pulley, and one set of gears. Together, they came up with some incredible creations while learning about the engineering process! Enjoy some of the machines Mrs. Lampe's class created!
Happy New Year!
Before winter break, STEAM Club learned about series and parallel circuits. Then, using only a few basic materials, the students were given the challenge of building their own series circuit that would light a single bulb from a string of Christmas lights. It was very exciting to make the bulb light up!
