                        HCMS SPOTLIGHT:

Students are beginning a computer science unit in Ms. Hersel's 7th grade tech/career classes. Problem solving is a big component of the unit. Students kicked off the unit by trying to figure out how to construct a boat from a 5x5 piece of aluminum foil that would hold at least 20 pennies without sinking. Students worked with a partner to brainstorm their ideas, build the boat, try it with the pennies in the water, and reflect on their results. They then built a 2nd boat to try and improve on their ideas. Here are some pics from the activity.
