The Woodstock Elementary School STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) Lab and Makerspace is an exploratory learning space that strives to infuse the STEM disciplines into the broader curriculum. We have established a science, engineering and design learning lab in its own dedicated space, preparing our students today with the critical thinking, designing, engineering and problem solving skills they need to fill the jobs of tomorrow!
Third Grade Studies Balanced and Unbalanced Forces
The goal of this experiment was to balance the forces of air through a straw to keep the ping pong ball in the center - or on the blue line. It is a difficult task to achieve. They collected data on which type of air flow worked best, and wrote a claim supported by that data.
