Mrs. Holly Johnson’s Quest classes participated in a S.T.E.M. project that required them to work collaboratively and use strategic planning in order to save Fred. Students were given their materials and then told they could not use their fingers to touch Fred. The object of this experiment was to get Fred (gummy worm) into his life vest (gummy lifesaver) by only using four paperclips. Impossible you might say, but these bright young students worked together wonderfully to find a solution to Fred’s problem. This was a great team building experience.
