Mrs. McAtee - 6th Grade
ROI’s STEM Fellows, Mrs. Tracie McAtee and Mrs. Jill Toy, arranged for 6th and 4th graders to collaborate during a STEM Challenge last week. Students were devised into teams of 4th and 6th graders and were challenged to build a paper roller coaster. Not only was the activity fun, but students were also able to learn to work as a team, learn the physics behind roller coasters, and use the design and engineering process to work through problems they may have encountered.
