Congratulations Mrs. Colon!!!

Colon LOTW

Get ready to engineer the extraordinary and journey into the realm of STEM as we dive into this week's lesson of the week. Our fearless students in Mrs. Colon's RISE RAMS class tackled the challenge of gummy bear engineering, harnessing the power of toothpicks and sweet treats to construct structures capable of holding an impressive load of books. Can you believe it? The strongest structure defied expectations by supporting a whopping 17 books!

Under the guidance of Mrs. Colon and her dedicated team, students delved into the intricacies of the Engineering Design Process. They navigated through criteria and constraints, honing their skills in imagination, planning, creation, improvement, and inquiry. Working in both large and small groups, they brought their designs to life, testing, documenting, and refining their innovations along the way.

But it wasn't all serious business in room 103! Amidst the scientific rigor, the class found joy in the process, indulging in the occasional gummy bear snack as they explored the delicious side of experimentation.

So, who says Science can't be fun and rewarding? Certainly not us! Join us this week as we celebrate curiosity, creativity, and the endless possibilities of STEM education. Let's continue to push boundaries, defy expectations, and make learning an adventure worth savoring. See you in class! 🧪📚🔬
