Case Study on the Caroline Wilderness Trail Flooding & Bridges
Caroline 2nd-graders in Mrs. Wells' and Mr. Schoch's classes studied about the flooding issues on our wilderness trail. They worked collaboratively through the engineering process to design and build bridges that would improve the flooding we have on the trail. Students then wrote scripts and storyboards to make commercials that asked for help with building our bridges. After presenting our work to the Board of Education and Facilities staff, we are happy to say that our bridges are receiving the help they need! Read more about the project and watch all of the commercials here.
