Eighth-graders ‘Tap into Tomorrow’

For the seventh year in a row, Cardinal Middle School sent a team to the state Future City Competition, a national program sponsored by the engineering community that promotes interest in technology and engineering by getting students to design a future city. This year, the school sent an eighth-grade trio with advisor Shaun Spence to compete in this year’s challenge, “Clean Water: Tap into Tomorrow.”

Students conduct filter experiment

Jordak Elementary School third-graders in Barb Tropf’s class studied natural resources and experimented with water filters made out of combinations of soil, sand, gravel, cotton and shredded paper. Students poured polluted water (water that contained dish soap, salt, food dye and sand) into their container to see if their filter could remove the pollution. While no one got clear water, the students found through their experiment that some water appeared lighter. The students then let the water evaporate to see what pollutants, if any, were left.
