This week in the STEM Lab Third graders concluded their lessons on forces and magnets with by engineering Never-Ending Magnet Swings! Groups have been working diligently to design, build, test, and revise to find a successful solution. Students worked together wonderfully to collaborate and persevere through several iterations of their designs that did not work. This activity was the culmination of several months of hard work conceptualizing different forces and putting their knowledge into practice!
