Making learning fun at Sweetwater Elementary School

Staff reports
Fourth grade students in Ms. Olson and Miss Jerome's classes at Sweetwater participated in a cooperative hands-on science investigation activity that involved the design and construction of a container that will stop an egg from breaking when it's dropped. Students worked in small groups with parent participation to create the containers. Their designs were put to the test on Friday, Aug. 26. There was much excitement and cheering from the crowd when they learned the outcome of the egg after it was dropped from the roof of the school. There were some very creative designs from grocery bags parachutes to the use of cake frosting as a "cushion."
