On Tues., Mar. 21st, two groups of 4th graders were invited to the MN Zoo to showcase their ZooMS design challenge project. Students were presented with the chance to develop a solution to a ‘real’ problem faced by zoo keepers and staff at the Minnesota Zoo. They were to design an enrichment activity for one of the grizzly bears. The students were challenged to use their science and math knowledge, creativity, problem solving, and research skills during the engineering design process Congratulations to these two groups for representing Woodland:

Orange Triangle Feeder- Sydney Hagen, Josh Morin, & Lucy Turfler.

The Orange Producer- Maisy Eisen, Harley Gray, Seth Kolehmainen & Lauren Wohletz. This team was also awarded with the Wolf Pack Award, given to the team that demonstrated an impressive team effort and an enthusiastic collaborative approach to their design challenge.
