***Workshop Filled to Capacity***

About the workshop:

Each teacher may bring up to four students to participate in the Bridge Challenge.  (Please list student names in the notes section of MQR upon registering).  Students will take a pre-task survey to self-assess skills in engineering, creativity, and problem-solving.  Student teams will create, design and build a Balsa Wood Bridge.  Teachers fill complete anecdotal observations forms to assess students while working on the task.  This event is funded through the 2016-2017 Gifted and Talented Grant.  Per grant requirements, a minimum of 25% of the student participants on a team must be from an under-represented group.  This challenge is ideal for students in grades 4-10.

Free to student/teacher teams from schools within the MVGT Network (includes Cashton, Whitehall, Wonewoc);  $50 per team for non-MVGT Schools.

Snacks and lunch provided.

Four students may attend with every one teacher that registers.  Max of 75 people.
