Day 05 - Smarter Transportation (Elementary)

Today we wrapped up our time at IBM by studying transportation systems in Longmont.  Our guest speaker was Mr. Ball, a traffic engineer from the City of Longmont.  He shared with us all the different ways transportation impacts the city and how they are innovating ways to get it all to work together.  He shared with us that his job at the city is to make transportation safer and more efficient.  We took his ideas and some Longmont maps and started to tackle the transportation of goods, bus systems, traffic systems, pedestrian systems, bike systems, and train systems in Longmont. We made prototypes of all of these systems and found ways to make them better.

We cannot wait till next week at Skyline High School!
