Posted by Allyson Greene at 6/8/2010 11:00:00 AM

We have some outstanding engineers here at Barrett in the 3rd grade! Please enjoy the pictures below of our students working in engineering teams to construct a wind mill which works to lift a small washer. These students worked hard and were able to put to use their knowledge of windmills, wind turbines, and wind energy with the Engineering Design Process.
