Geotechnical engineers have a very important job! They use their knowledge of soil and erosion to help decide where structures should be built! While they do not build structures, they are great with map skills, fair tests, and and manipulating the earth to make a location ideal to build a structure.
Second graders continue to improve their technologies to release water onto their farmland. They are recording the data from their experiments to show other groups how successful their design was in meeting the criteria of the challenge. Our highest number of squares to be reached on the farmland was 86 out of 90! The student pair to design the technology used a swinging mechanism to distribute the water a farther distance! How neat!
