Science, Tech, Engineering and Math hands on approach at Pittsburg High

Updated:

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math all connect in one STEM class project at Pittsburg High School.

Tuesday was race day and launch day for the projects of 65 students.

They worked in teams of four to build them, and learn the math and science behind spinning wheels, and velocity.

The students say it was fun to get out of a book while at the same time getting a dose of combined curricula.

Instructors say the hands-on approach puts theory into action.

The Aeromax launcher was designed by Pittsburg State University Technology and Engineering students who intend to teach the subjects in school.  Part of their assignment was to help develop the STEM curriculum and create products to make it work.
