    4th Grade Run-Away Truck Challenge!!!

    Think you could stop a run-away truck...with NO BRAKES??? Our 4th grade engineers can... using only a piece of cardboard, paper towel tubes, popsicle sticks and some tape.. This instant design challenge put their planning and organizing skills to the test today, and here are the results!  (No trucks were harmed in this experiment...ha ha..)  Great work class!


    Nice work!!! Love the sticky tape and barrier method!   Stack them high!!! Great job!!   Walls stop us, so why not trucks?? Nice Work!! The sideways approach.. (This picture just wouldn't straighten out... tilt head to view.. ha ha..)
