Our fifth grade is learning about the science curriculum at Thomas Prince School. We are learning about the science, technology, and engineering process of STEAM. You may think it’s boring but, it’s one of the most exciting subjects to learn about. The technology and engineering process is first, you have to decide, what is the problem with your object? Then, you must brainstorm ideas and materials. After that, design a diagram and create. Of course, we didn't actually create life-sized models...but there were a few small models. Soon, you test and fix any problems then remake it. Finally, you retest, and of course keep trying if it doesn't work.
Raeanna Deloge was brilliant enough to design her own Harry Potter themed desk. It has a built in wand and quill holder and ink bottle. Inside the desk, there are little flaps against the sides so you can hold your “spells.” There was a string so the “wizards” could carry their desks with them. Raeanna didn’t have to make the desk, she just wanted to for fun. She had done a magical job. Also, Ashlynn and Allison made educational desks after seeing Raeanna's desk. First Allison made a huge desk including a pencil dispenser/pencil sharpener. Then, Ashlynn made a double decker desk with a water bottle holder. In conclusion, everyone had done a FANTASTIC job!
