STEM: Trash Sliders

The STEM classes are doing a project called "Trash Sliders." We are taking recyclable materials and creating a sled-like object to slide down a ramp onto the floor. The students and I would appreciate any type of rinsed out cans and plastic bottles, paper towel/TP rolls, or tissue boxes donated to the classroom if you are able to do so. 


A test on Chapter 2 will be on Friday, September 8th. Students should start studying their INB and review the chapter in their book.
