Mr. Moseley speaking to studentsOn February 2, fourth graders had a guest speaker for Science.  Shawn Moseley an engineering manager at Saint-Gobain came to talk to students about careers in engineering and the engineering process.

Mr. Moseley got his mechanical engineering degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology.  He came and taught fourth graders about the engineer design process.  First, he discussed the design processes with students using real examples from his every day job. After going through the design process students were split up into their science groups and asked to solve a problem using the engineering process.students building marshmallow tower

Students were challenged with building a tower using spaghetti, tape and marshmallows. The group who had the tallest tower won the challenge. Not only did students engage in the engineering processes, but they also learned about problem solving within a group. We would like to thank Mr. Moseley for coming to speak with our science students. See more photos here.
