Peeps STEM Challenge Excites Minetto Fifth Graders

MINETTO – Jennifer Majlaton and Keriann Hunter’s fifth grade class at Minetto Elementary recently completed an Easter-themed S.T.E.M. challenge.

Peep flingers

The students were tasked with working in a group to design and build a catapult device using only pencils, rubber bands and a plastic spoon that would fling a Peep candy the farthest.

Groups tested and revised their designs several times before the “Peep-apult” challenge.
