Dome Building

This morning we were lucky enough to have a special visitor!  Noor’s mom is a Civil Engineer, and came in to talk about what engineering is, and then the students all built geodesic domes, using gum drops and toothpics.  They wrote a prediction about its ability to hold weight, and we will be testing these this afternoon.  It was a great morning!  Next week is National Engineering week, and it was a fun way to kick off the learning that will continue to take place next week.
