Thanks for a great year in English 8

Thank you to all of the parents and students for making this year’s English class so great! As students are completing their final reflection, they have had a chance to see all of the skills and material we worked with this year. It’s been a lot – but the kids handled it very well and have really come a long way since last August. Thank you to them for their hard work and dedication, and to the parents for all that they do to support that effort!

The Results are in!

Winning Bridge!
Students have done the math and the results are in! Team FD was determined to have the winning bridge!

The goal for the students was to build a bridge that was very strong but didn't cost too much to build. The students used the dead load weight (the weight of the bridge itself) to determine which bridges would cost the most to build.

There were many great bridges built this year for the STEM project!
You can see all of the bridges here!

Bridge with the highest live load, with 79 N or 18 lbs!

Student graph of the data collected during the bridge project! Students graphed the data to determine the winner of the competition!
