    Little Leaves update January 4

    Today in Little Leaves we introduced the Engineering Design Process.  Our students were presented with a problem, and worked in groups to collaborate on a solution!  The problem was to build a bridge that a small car could cross over under its own power.  Our students rose to the challenge, and each group constructed a unique bridge, and learned a bit about engineer thinking in the process!
