Fletcher Elementary Students Bring Carnival Games to a 3D Reality

From left, Lily Ljiljanich and Nicole Garripo Fifth-grade enrichment students at Fletcher Elementary have been researching, designing and using engineering skills to bring carnival games into a 3D reality. Students then became marketing data researchers to help make decisions regarding the reward of prizes and prices for admission. In June, students will invite their peers to come play their carnival games for fun and prizes. Students used their math, economics and functional design skills to complete a hands-on approach to common core standards. Pictured are, from left, Lily Ljiljanich and Nicole Garripo.
