Title of event/project:
Engineering Your World
URL to project/event starting point:
“Can We Save the World with Engineering?” Through this SURVEY LINK, St. Paul’s Lower School Discovery Center fourth graders seek to connect with other students around the world in order to learn and share real challenges which can be solved using the various engineering disciplines.
Project/event directions for participation:
Ever-expanding their own world view, these fourth graders began thinking about the real-life problems they might encounter in the Discovery Center, throughout the Lower School, in their local communities and now, around the world! They first created Voki avatars to voice their personal ideas. Then their teams canvassed St. Paul’s teachers and administrators through a Global Celebration Day scavenger hunt. But to reach out to global learning communities, over the next month they want to share through post a few of their problem-solving projects and related engineering disciplines; and hope in return their peers world-wide will collaborate, through short messages, photos, creative art, etc.
