2nd Grade Learns About Forces So They Can Build Pedestals

The second grade classes have made statues that represent our school and now it's time to make the pedestal. So we brought the classes down to learn about the forces that will act on their pedestals. This lesson challenged them to make a structure that would go between 2 pillars and hold up as many weights as possible. Following the engineering design process, they came up with some cool ideas.

The next step is to come up with some ideas for their pedestal design and to create prototypes to test for strength and stability.
