Returning to the High River Library in November 2019, is the exciting Engineering program, Project READesign!
READesign incorporates elements of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) into a learning experience where participants use the Engineering Design Process to solve problems for characters in a story. In this session, we are reading an old favorite – Mary Pope Osbourne’s “Vacation Under the Volcano”.
Our fourth and final session for Project READesign High River was held on March 24 at the High River Library in the W.O. Mitchell room.
Participants designed devices to rescue Jack and Annie, characters from “Vacation Under the Volcano” by Mary Pope Osbourne, from a ‘creek bed full of volcanic ash and pumice sand’ without touching the characters with their hands. In the book, the characters are rescued by a huge gladiator – Hercules – who is featured in the scroll that Jack and Annie are sent back to rescue from Pompeii in ancient roman times.
