White City Elementary students build lunar habitats for NASA

Students in Andrea Logue’s fifth grade science class at White City Elementary completed a real-world engineering project based on the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) initiative. Students were “NASA engineers” for the day and competed against other engineering teams to design and build a lunar habitat model using only straws, masking tape, aluminum foil, and plastic wrap.  Each model needed to be airtight, have an airlock, and a renewable energy source.
