What do you make using straws, aluminum foil, PVC pipes, string, and duct tape? This was the Braincooker challenge faced by students in Mrs. Golakova’s seventh and eighth grade classes this month at Nightingale. Each class split into groups and competed to invent the best model of a given object, such as a fashion accessory or instrument. The students in each team were required to call upon their creativity and then collaborate to design and build their models. Each team then shared their process with their class, and each class voted on their favorite model. When the votes came in, the results were close due to the many innovative products created!
