Specialty Spotlight: Science
The third graders recently finished their FRD (Fox Relocation Device) Project. Inspired by Roald Dahl’s book, Fantastic Mr. Fox, they set out to more humanely rethink the human characters’ decision to kill the foxes because of their continued raiding of the farmers’ storage houses.
Each student’s FRD required designing and planning to meet the specific goals they brainstormed, as well as careful building, testing, and re-designing as they worked through the iterative Design Thinking cycle to create their solutions.
In this photo, we see a couple FRD’s in their last stages, preparing for a final test.
