Harbor Hill Students Learn to Weather a Storm

Third-graders in Ms. Meghan Plant’s science class at Harbor Hill took on a STEAM challenge to create hurricane-proof houses as the finale to their weather unit. Working in teams, students used four sheets of paper, four straws, a meter of tape, and a paper plate to design houses with four walls, two windows, and a door. Their designs were tested for strength and durability, using a leaf blower and spray bottle to simulate hurricane conditions. The project was a hit, with every student enjoying the hands-on experience and feeling prepared to weather any storm!
