What can you do with a bag of gummy bears, some duct tape, and some skewers?

Well, ALC students in the education class and engineering CAPS class are working together to create a human masterpiece. The students are working with the Gail Halvorsen foundation to create STEM-related learning stations for elementary-aged students. This creation can be used in several ways to teach about motion, wavelengths, and DNA strands. 

The students had a great time building it and showing it off! Great work ALC students.
