Engineering club rides again

All year: Students in grades 1-8 in the after-school engineering club meets each week with teacher Elizabeth Brasher, LCA parent Jessica Houston, and other parents on occasion.  Elizabeth and Jessica pose challenging questions for the students to solve.   A recent one was, with gumdrops and toothpicks, make an open-frame structure than can support a book.  Another was, with straws, paper, glue, and Tygon tubing, make a pneumatically operated crane that can lift a cup with a load.  Elizabeth is our teacher of English, and several other subjects, who can do anything.  Jessica is an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering.  The students also got to work with Lego Robotics earlier!
