On Monday, 35 of our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students participated in the Honeywell/Fiesta Bowl Challenge. They designed a base for people to live and work on the moon. Just a few of the challenges that they had to deal with were:
- How to maintain a supply of oxygen/food and water;
- How to protect themselves from solar radiation; and
- How to mine Helium 3 from the surface rock, process it and return it to Earth to be used as a new energy source.
These students had a chance to practice each of the 15 DWP skills while working on this project. We would like to recognize those students at this time.
