Here is our latest progress of bulding the contraptions. We moved our ideas to our auditorium as students are beginning to figure out how to mesh all their projects together. They are realizing quickly that this is quite the challenge. Frustration has set in a little bit and it is interesting to see how each one responds. Some keep trying, some get angry, some shut down and start to act goofy and get off task, others will help others who are struggling. We have a project on our hands that is really pushing these kids to figure out how to problem solve and how to deal with things not working the way they want. This is just what the kids need.

Here are the 5th graders working hard to make things work. It is crunch time as we only have a limited amount of time to get things going before we have to be out of the auditorium.
