About this Grantee

Dr. Roy, Ms. Espinoza, and Ms. Rodriguez develop students’ notation, computation, and communication skills through hands-on engineering activities. Students who traditionally struggle with standardized tests work with peers to design and construct mousetrap cars, water and engine powered rockets, balsawood bridges, and electrical circuit boards. During the process, students communicate with other classes through internet discussion boards and compete against other student teams.
