Program Spotlight
Carrie Wilson is an Elementary Science Specialist at the Bennikar Charter School in Cambridge. She’s also a student in one of our many science programs. In her “Teaching Science & Technology in Early Childhood & Elementary Curriculum” class, she was tasked with developing a design/engineering demonstration that addressed the Engineering Standards in the MA Science Frameworks for 2016. Carrie addressed the concept that many engineering design/structures are derived from the natural world. “In this demo,” explains Professor John Papadonis (who is also shown in the picture), “Carrie has taken a total of 12 paper cups and added two pieces of cardboard on top of each layer of cups. It is in fact, the cylindrical design of the paper cups that is supporting all of her weight. This concept is borrowed from the design of plant stems in the natural world.” Well done, Carrie!
