2nd Grade Structure Building--Part 2

These are some of the statues that the students made in their class. You may notice som of the symbols on the statue was designed by the kids and made on the laser cutter in the Lab.

Using the knowledge they gained last week with our building bridges lesson, the 2nd grade started making the prototype pedestals for their statues. They followed the design process of asking questions, imagining various ideas, planning one idea, creating + testing it, and improving it.

The last phase is to build the actual platforms for their statues. We'll used what they learned from making the prototypes plus add a couple of requirements (like minimum and maximum height). Using tape, scissors and cardboard here's what the process looked like.
