• Welcome to my distance learning classroom! You can utilize one of the following lessons. Feel free to have siblings work together, or work with your child to create.  As engineers, we want to use creativity, plan, improve our idea and test it to see if it works.  Most of all, we want students to HAVE FUN! Feel free to use ANY building materials (legos, manga titles, etc.) or any household materials.  QUEST is all about innovation—use what you have!
