We congratulate the following recipients and thank all who presented their ideas for consideration.
Brier Elementary, Shannon Gonsalves, 4th-6th grade
After working with a Motion and Design science kit, students will build solar cars to learn about the alternative energy source and enhance their understanding of STEM concepts.
Edmonds Elementary, Christy Diefendorf & Karyn Heinekin, 4th grade
Using Snap Circuits kits, students will gain valuable hands on experience by creating and studying electrical circuits. In conjunction with the Snap Circuits, students will also learn about renewable and nonrenewable energy sources in order to make better choices as consumers of energy.
Martha Lake Elementary, Anna Walter, 4th grade
In alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards, students will build models of wind generators to create energy. Students will also extend their learning of technology by designing experiments with circuitry using Makey Makey boards.
Meadowdale Middle School, Diana Browne, 7th-8th grade
Consistent with state standards, students will use tools and models to see and experience energy transfers and transformations in a variety of systems. A water turbine model will teach students how most of our electricity is generated in the Northwest – through hydropower – making it relevant for students.
