Collaborative STEM Project at Wilcox Primary School

Mrs. Julie Cain’s first grade class joined forces with Mrs. Meghan Hritz’s Kindergarten class for their first STEM project of the year. Students worked with a partner from the other class to create a pom-pom slingshot. Once they had pom-poms flying in the classroom, students measured how far they could make their pom-poms go. There was a lot of thinking (“I have an idea”), trial and error, revising plans, and comparing strategies. BTW – Mrs. Cain is Mrs. Hritz’s mother!
