Class Notes: Maker Madness

Students from Roosevelt Elementary School in Burlingame participating in the Maker Madness Challenges launch ping pong balls at targets in the school gym. The event is based on the NCAA’s March Madness and lasts over a month. Every two weeks, students receive a new challenge and have one week to complete it for a competition held Fridays in the gym. So far, the school has completed a Bridge Challenge in which the students used popsicle sticks to build a bridge that could support a set of five textbooks. The second challenge was the catapult. The next challenge will take place on Friday, March 29.
