Engineering Excellence!

Day 3 of Science week brought out all of Canyon’s budding engineers. Kindergarteners created rollercoasters while some second graders in Mrs. Lee’s class made bristle bots (robots from toothbrush heads)! In Ms. Hobbs’ class, students created bridges and other buildings using popsicle sticks. 3rd grade created electromagnets using batteries and copper wire. They were able to pick up multiple metal objects! Simultaneously, 3rd graders in Mrs. Messersmith’s class were conducting other experiments by measuring rates of evaporation. 4th grade investigated different types of engineers and later were lucky enough to design several projects. 5th grade measured distance and wind velocity through the construction and flying of paper airplanes, which required multiple designs. Mrs. McKinney’s 6th grade class created electrical currents using a penny, a nail, alligator clips, and…. lemons!?! Ms. Messer’s 6th grade class, not to be outdone, created magnetic slime! It was a fantastic and exciting day at Canyon! Be sure to come out to our Family Night on Thursday, April 27th, from 5:30-7:30 pm, to witness more projects in person.
