7th Graders Learned about Engineering and Erosion

On May 30 and 31, the New England Aquarium brought to Bigelow 7th graders their new Coastal Engineering Outreach Program. The program challenges students to address the issues of local coastal erosion through the engineering design process, with an emphasis on communication and collaboration. Students work as teams employing engineering design to plan, test, and present their solutions to limit the erosion of sand from their own section of simulated sandy coastline.

This program was sponsored by the PTO, thanks to the support of our community.
