CU Teams

Rocky Mountain Elementary has the honor and pleasure to welcome back Wyatt Champion to lead Teams this year. CU Teams is a grant funded program through CU in which doctoral students in their engineering program work with elementary, middle and high school students on STEM projects.  This past week, all students in our 4th and 5th grades were collaborating to build adobe bricks. They learned about the history and practicality of adobe bricks. They then decided to test different compositions of bricks. Students tested out different variables to see which brick was the strongest. Some groups added more water, while another would add sand or more straw. In the end, students had a grand time mixing, getting dirty, and testing out their bricks.
