As an extension to the regular science program, students in 73,74, 83 and 84 were presented with the challenge of creating a product that would solve an existing problem or need.
In teams of four, they brainstormed ideas and discussed the practicality of products and designs. Through trial and error they set to work engineering their final product. Learning along the way from what worked and what didn't.
Once the design was finished, they conducted market research and calculated their costs before setting an asking price for each product.
On April 15t at the Scotia Centre, it was time to present their ideas. And they were kept busy. To their credit many people took the time to listen and learn about what middle school students had been able to create.
The feedback they gave was a tribute to what Thomas Street students are able to imagine and create.
It was a great reminder of how motivated and inventive our students truly are.
