WMS offers SEAPERCH, a STEM/engineering course facilitated by Mrs. Greer Harvell, as an elective option for students. This week, students designed small vehicles powered by the snapping action of a mousetrap. Students' vehicles must cover a flat distance of five meters. Upon completion, each team member documented their learning with a written summary of their research on automotive engineering and mousetrap racers. Through teamwork, SEAPERCH students rose to meet the cognitive demands of the complex challenge.
