Tornado and Hurricane Proof House Day!

Due to a scheduling conflict, we were not able to take the third-grade class on a field trip to the CWRU thinkbox this year, BUT, Professor Jim Bader came to run a STEM Design Challenge for us right here at Highland! Using only tape, popsicle sticks, paperclips, and paper, students constructed structures that would withstand the wind of a hurricane! Check out these priceless photos!
