Innovation Station
The second and third grade students in Mr. Dreske’s and Ms. Miller’s classes have been dabbling with the design process during genius hour.  This week, the group teamed up with the innovation coach, DL coach and Mrs. Gosch to kick off Irving's Innovation Station with the first, of many, invention challenges! Mrs. Gosch presented the students with a problem she needed help solving. Working in groups, the students were challenged to brainstorm, design, test, and redesign a confetti launcher!

This experience provided a highly engaging opportunity for the students to understand and apply the design process. In addition, students worked collaboratively to solve a real-world problem with a heavy focus on problem solving, having a positive attitude, staying on task, and working with others in a group. Curiosity, engagement, and excitement filled the room and left the students wanting more!
