Recently, 7th-grade technology students in Mr. Bevington's class have been putting their collaboration and problem-solving skills to work! They were challenged to create a structure that could hold as much weight as possible while only using paper, paperclips, tape, a little bit of cardboard, scissors, and a ruler. The students put their heads together to think creatively about the goal. Congratulations to Haiqua U., Alexa A., and Maizey B., who designed a structure that was able to hold 25 pounds, a class record!!
