STEM Cranberry Challenge

To connect high school creative arts students with the district’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics curriculum, the district’s STEM department challenged them to use their problem-solving skills to build tall and geometric structures using a box of toothpicks and cranberries.  

“Students came up with many creative designs that required them to plan, test and improve designs,” said Dr. Amy Meyer, STEM director.  

The challenge is the first of several upcoming STEM challenges in which students will promote inductive and deductive thinking skills.
