ACS Science Fair

The Fourth grade class, of Assumption Catholic School, had to put what they learned in Science to the test. They had to design and construct Leprechaun Traps, in class. These traps had to be made of at least three simple machines. Then, Sixth grade students came into the Fourth grade class to test the traps and identify the machines that were used in each. Following their investigation, they had to go back to class and compute the energy each machine used. Fourth grade inventors then got the chance to grade the sixth graders, to see if they did indeed identify the machines correctly. This was something they thoroughly enjoyed. Now, we just have to wait until Saint Patrick’s Day to see if any traps can catch the Leprechaun that visits every year. Just keep your eyes open, he is quick and tricky.
