Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School

Young Engineers at BUMS

Mrs. Benson and Mrs. Darnell scheduled Mrs. Cate Schlobohm, and Mr. Ryan Sigler, from the West Virginia University School of Engineering and Mineral Resources to speak to students. The pair did a great job of explaining the design process. Students were taught to ask, imagine, plan, create, and improve. With the engineering cycle being a continuous process of better, cooler, and improved results. The students were then given a set of materials and ask to use the engineering cycle to design and build a coin flipper. The designs were diverse and creative. The students enjoyed the visit.
