STEM Lab: Parachute Design

Under the guidance of Mr. Misch, STEM Lab Coordinator, 6th grade students recently engaged in designing and testing parachutes.  Students collaborated to create a parachute design that would later be tested and assessed using an assessment rubric.  Mr. Misch accessed the main stairwell as a means to assess the students’ work.  Students certainly leverage critical and creative thinking for this task and really enjoyed the multitude of stages required during this project.
