Projects

Daniel-We are working hard on our Welcome Packet for PRS Learners! We are collecting data from new learners, creating a video on how to greet new learners and creating a PRS Welcome Packet for online and a hard copy, too. We have decided to make Buddy Benches for our school so we have somewhere to sit and get to know our new learners, also.


Davis - we have completed our 3D models of motorized aircraft this week. Next, we will make digital presentations to teach our classmates about the aircraft they've chosen.

Steindorff- We are getting close to wrapping up our focus on water transportation. This week tested our boats to see if each design worked as planned. We embraced failure when some of our boats did not work as planned but also encouraged each other when redesigning and testing again. Take a look at our boat tests: https://youtu.be/-c6JU5rXR9A
