Students in Coach White’s Engineering Enrichment classes conducted experiments on building boats. The students had to design and build a boat out of straws and plastic wrap that could hold 25 pennies for at least 10 seconds before sinking. The students were challenged to use creativity, critical thinking skills, collaboration and persistence to find solutions to complete the experiment. It was a great activity that challenged the students improve their structures or eliminate problems so that they could achieve the desired outcome. Way to be critical thinkers and collaborators, GMS students! #Grit2Grit
