Gillispie “Gem” of the Week

CIMG6628.160803

 

Gillispie Grade 1 students have been working on “building challenges” this year in Mr. Edwards’ science class.

Each challenge involves using different building materials – LEGOS, giant foam cubes, wooden blocks, PVC pipes and fittings – to construct different types of structures.

Their most recent challenge was building, over the course of several work sessions, a geodesic dome- a round, shell structure comprised of a lattice of triangles- out of tape and plastic straws.
