Here is what your child has been working on in 8th grade STEM:
 
The eighth grade Automation and Robotics (STEM) classes completed their end of unit projects last week. Teams of two or three were tasked with designing, building and decorating a prototype pull toy. The toy is meant to be pulled with a string and the motion of the spinning wheels should be converted to something non-rotary. Each class took part in a pull toy parade for the seventh grade STEM students and the seventh graders chose a "winner" for each bell. These are the pictures of the winning teams with their machines.
Mr. Poehner took some members of his seventh grade STEM class to Thyssenkrupp Bilstein. During this visit, students were shown  engineering activities that result in sustainable contribution towards the ongoing improvement of structural designs and systems in the automotive industry.  Students saw first hand the skills and decisions that go into this growing industry.
