Students catch STEM fever at district’s annual expo Posted: March 31, 2015 2458 College Place Elementary fifth graders Emma Solyanik and Savannah Johnson (right) prepare to work with their Seahawk football robot named Marshawn Lynch during the Edmonds School District STEM Fair Wednesday at Mountlake Terrace High School. The robot is designed to act like a football player and make various football moves by using different sensors. The students were inspired by this year’s Super Bowl to make sure Marshawn Lynch busts through the defensive line for a touchdown.

Christen Spadavecchia from Meadowdale Elementary was eager to talk about his Rotor Linear Supersonic Helicopter that was designed to land in narrow streets, such as in Edmonds. Lynnwood Elementary’s fourth grade class designed and build a canoe. Teacher Tom White supervised the project. Students also had to determine whether the canoe would float by a mathematical formula and later by taking it to the Lynnwood Recreation Center to test it in the pool. The canoe did, in fact, float. Detailed plans of how the canoe was built can be found online at: https://teacher.edmonds.wednet.edu/lynnwood/twhite/documents.
