CCMS Students Participate in KEEN Project

CCMS Students Participate in KEEN Project

Pre-Algebra students from Mrs. Tobin's classes participated in a bridge building contest sponsored by KEEN (Kentucky Engineering Exposure Network). Students studied various bridge designs and then created truss bridges out of toothpicks and gum drops. The bridges were then tested for stability by placing their bridges on abutments and loading the structure with pencils until they collapsed.  Emma Bay, Hannah Kraly, and Morgan Turner built a bridge that held 122 pencils!  The students made many mathematical and science connections as they learned about the career opportunities within engineering.
