Earhart Elementary-Middle School students featured at the North American International Auto Show

First-grade students at Earhart Elementary-Middle School are shown working on the “A World in Motion” (AWIM) Pinball Designer Project, a program sponsored by General Motors.  The project was showcased at the North American International Auto Show. Students learned the five phases of the Engineering Design Experience – Set Goals, Build Knowledge, Design, Build and Test, and Present. They designed a pinball game with five targets and three bumpers, which allowed players to score between 7 and 12 points. Access to the AWIM curriculum provides an excellent resource for teachers to provide Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) learning experiences that require critical thinking and problem solving skills with real-world application.
