Third graders in Karen Wilson and Kim Renetzky's class developed innovative and interactive games as part of their maker challenge Friday, April 23. The students developed a game using whiffle balls, cups, string, rackets, balloons and duct tape.
Guided by the engineering design process, this project provided an open-ended problem for students to solve in a self-directed, hands-on way. The activity was a precursor to Market Day to help them develop problem-solving skills. Market Day will be held May 18 (rain date May 20) and for fourth graders only.
