• Engineering Great Learning Opportunities

    Posted by Kathy Connell at 9/30/2014

    "Every bridge begins in the mind of an engineer."

    In Laura Flosi's math academy class at Inza Wood Middle School, students are learning how real engineers apply mathematical concepts when designing bridges. The students began by working in small groups and using their background knowledge to design and construct bridges using manila file folders.  They tested the weight-bearing capacity of their bridges and reflected on what they observed. By the end of the course, students will learn and apply authentic engineering design processes to develop, build, and test a model of a truss bridge.

    Willow McCormick’s summer took an unexpected — and very productive — turn when she learned in the spring that she had been selected to attend a teacher institute at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
    The annual institute’s focus this year on civil rights meant that the Willamette Primary teacher would have a chance to explore her passion for civil rights in the nation’s capital, the site of many important civil rights milestones and monuments.[FULL STORY]
