January 12, 2018Replicating Historical Architecture

Students in Mr. Yarbrough's World History class created medieval castles using popsicle sticks, glue, and other supplies. The castles were created using Gothic style architecture with intentions of replicating castles from medieval times. Students researched why castles were built during this time period and then developed an argumentative essay outline to describe their findings.

In October, students in C.A. Gray Junior High School's 8th Grade Technological Systems students explored the engineering design process while participating in a popsicle bridge design challenged created by IEEE (Institute of Elecitral and Electronics Engineers) as part of TryEngineering. Students in Mr. Robbie Pitts’ class were challenged to create a bridge that could hold at least 20 pounds without failing while keeping to a constraint of less than 200 popsicle sticks. Over the course of two weeks, the students went through the design process to come up with concepts, and evaluate their bridge plans while working as a team. At the end of the challenge, students put weights on thebridges to test their designs. Students' bridges held weights from 20 to over 125 pounds. A few bridges were so sturdy that they had to stop putting weights on them for safety reasons.C.A. Gray Junior High students holding engineering project made of popsicle sticks.Hands-On Engineering
