time to open our engineering minds for the 2019 school year! We are proud to present the PS205 2nd
annual STEM Design and Engineering Challenge!
For those who may have not participated or do not remember, students
completed their grade specific project at home and came back to school the
night of the STEM Challenge to test their structures. It was an unbelievable
evening of science and engineering!
annual STEM Design and Engineering Challenge will take place Friday, March 8th,
2019 at 5:00pm in the cafeteria. Every student from kindergarten through fifth
grade will have the opportunity to participate in grade specific challenges.
Projects must be completed at home. This will not be taking place during class
time. Students will have the next few weeks
to design, engineer and then redesign their projects if necessary. Families are responsible for all
materials. All design projects were
chosen to keep cost of materials to a minimum.
The majority of materials for the projects will be everyday items found
around your home. I know you cannot wait to find out what the
design and engineering challenges are, so let me introduce to you the STEM
challenges for the grades:
2nd/3rd Grade: PAPER TABLE DESIGN AND ENGINEERING CHALLENGE
4th/5th Grade: ZIPLINE DESIGN AND ENGINEERING CHALLENGE
read through the projects and encourage your child to take advantage of this
STEMtastic opportunity. Each student
that participates will receive an award.
Design and engineering awards will be given to those students whose
projects are able to succeed in their given challenge. Please detach the slip below and return to
Mr. B by Friday, February 1st, 2019.
you families for your support in building up our STEM program and helping to
create 21st century designers and engineers!
