Engineering Wonders of the World

Sixth grade engineering teams were challenged to design and construct a working miniature golf hole representing a theme of a Wonder of the World.

To prepare for this challenge, students explored geometric principles including congruent, complementary and supplementary angles. They worked with pentominoes, scale drawings and levers. They conducted research on a wonder of the world. Finally, they followed the same steps engineers do in their jobs: ask, imagine, plan, create, and improve. Their impressive and creative putting holes are the result of many weeks of trial, improvement and success.

Many thanks to Mrs. McGuire for coordinating this innovative educational unit and congratulations to all of our young LCA engineers!
