Students used a cone to represent the ear. Their classmate tapped the cone so kids could hear what that sounds like.
They then added a plastic cup "eardrum." and their classmates again tapped the cone. They all reported that the sound was louder with the "eardrum."

Bridge Building for VT Tech Popsicle Stick Competion
Sixth Grade students, Ian Goldberg, Evan
Kurash and Nixon Malik competed in the Vermont Technical College's Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Competition. The only materials allowed in this competition are Popsicle sticks, Elmer's Glue, toothpicks and dental floss.
Mr Fisher helped us a lot with lessons on structure and stability.
Finally putting the deck on!
After months of designing and construction, we went to the competition to see our bridge "fail" at 205 lbs of pressure. This was a good performance, and earned us second place in the middle school division. It also gave us lots of great ideas on how to make our design even better next year.
Congratulations Evan, Ian and Nixon! Great job!

When added together undergo a chemical reaction. One of the key indicators of a chemical reaction is temperature change. The students are determining whether it is an exothermic or endothermic reaction.
We were awarded a $900 grant from VASE, the Vermont Academy of Science and Engineering, to buy five Vernier temperature probes, and five Labquest Minis (the digital probe interface) These are great because they can be used with chrome books and you can see a temperature change graph in real time.
