Summer engineering camp for 4, 5 graders in FISD

Students in Friendswood ISD participated recently in a summer engineering camp for 5th and 6th grade students through the Community Education Program. There were 18 students in the class under the direction of engineering teachers Michael Lowe and Lilian Wilson.

The camp broke the students into design teams and gave them challenges, such as transferring “toxic waste” ( marshmellows) from one container to another, designing satellite delivery systems, and designing a container holder. They each got to design and test run a rocket car.
