Mentoring Greenwich Academy Grade 5 Science Classes
Greenwich Academy, an independent day school for girls, holds an Invention Convention every year for their 5th graders. Following the engineering design process, the students are required to design an invention to be judged by the community in early February. To kick-off the event, Leanne Pasquini visited the 5th grade science classes to introduce and discuss the engineering design process. The students were challenged to “think outside the circle” and learned several ways in which engineers use the design process to improve the world around us. Leanne's visit inspired the girls to add "green" or sustainable criteria into their inventions.
