Engineering is Elementary for these Bancroft 2nd Graders

Bancroft second graders worked hard to build bridges for their Engineering is Elementary unit on technology and design.  This curriculum, designed by the Museum of Science, has students understand and apply the design process: ask, imagine, plan, create, improve.  Students listened to a story about building bridges and discussed how that could be done both literally or figuratively (with friendships).  They then were given the task to work with peers and certain materials to design and build a bridge.  The final bridge had to hold a certain amount of weight and be able to have a matchbox car drive over it.  Students enjoyed building and testing their bridges, learning from each other's ideas, and cheering on their classmates!
