Have a Problem? We Have Solutions!

Building inventions to solve every-day problems has sparked excitement in the EHGEMS Science Lab. Students brainstormed problems or thought about the “things that bother us.” They selected a problem, drew a sketch of an invention to solve this problem, gathered recycled materials and have begun to build creative solutions to the problems at hand.

Over the next few weeks every student in the school will be building pro-types of inventions that could make your world or life on other planets a better, happier, safer, funnier, easier or more environmentally friendly place! Our second graders will tackle the challenge to design and build plant growth chambers which may some day allow astronauts to eat healthy, fresh vegetables while living in space!
