Science Materials Center Specialist Serena Williams challenged teachers in the nPower Girls program to exercise their spatial skills by staging a science kit packing contest.
The teachers were asked to incorporate organizational skills in this engineering challenge. Using the supplies from actual science kits used in classrooms, teachers were asked to pack the kits in the most time and space-efficient manner. The winner was the one who completed the task the fastest with most remaining space in the kit.
The ESD science materials center manages 1500 science kits for schools in our region.
