East Campus STEM Club Students Build 3D Shapes

After reading Iggy Peck Architect, by Andrea Beaty, and discussing engineering, students used fruit gummies and toothpicks to build various sculptures. Students started with basic 3D shapes before building more complex objects such as houses and Ferris Wheels. During the building process, students identified the challenges with creating larger sculptures from these materials. This encouraged students to devise new plans to create better versions of their sculptures.
