Burton Elementary School sixth grade students traveled to Geauga Airport earlier this week to participate in a practical and hands-on learning experience to reinforce the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) and Project Based Learning curriculum in the District. In addition to touring the life-sized planes in the hangar, students had the chance to fly their very own planes that they constructed in class and make assessments about their flight capabilities. Their goal was to compete with themselves and improve their air-time by charting actual data and brainstorming improvements in the building process. Students will have the chance to upgrade and enhance their planes in class next week. Thank you to BE 6th grade science/social studies teacher, S.T.E.A.M. and Science Olympiad Advisor, Amy Hochschild, for developing this interactive Project Based assignment for our 6th graders.
