New Engineering Rotation: Week of January 27th

Calling all Engineers (at least 5th grade ones)-
Here's the latest with 5th grade engineering.  We are headed into our 4th rotation already!  The students have been civil engineers, mechanical engineers, and battled the elements to craft a vessel that would rescue them from a tropical island (sounds okay to stay stranded as well).  The next step will take us to the air.  In this new rotation, student teams will be designing and implementing both aircraft and parachutes, as they learn about lift and drag.  Teams will strive for lengthy flights as well as slow descents, all while documenting their work and creating a summarizing slideshow.  It should be a super adventure and full of trial, error, and learning. 
Keep in touch.  My door is always open.  Thanks for reading!
Sincerely,
Mr. B-)
