ARNOLD • On May 4th, nearly 600 parents and family members visited the Fox C-6 Service Center to see hundreds of student projects on display. The projects, which were developed by 1st-5th graders in the district’s REACH program, signify the culmination of a year’s worth of hard work from students and teachers.
“We’re so proud of our students,” said REACH educator, Ms. Krystal Hargis. “The students are thrilled to be able to share their work with parents and loved ones.”
On display were working roller coaster models. The models were designed using principles of physics, and could theoretically be turned into "life-size" versions. Students used marbles to test their designs and parents had a chance to see them in action and test them at the showcase.
Other students built working submersibles, or presented research on animals or national parks. Computers were used to display student blogs and other technical achievements from these young learners.
Pictures of the event can be found on the district Facebook page.
