5th Annual Conundrum Day

For the fifth year in a row, we would like to recognize and thank our STEM Advisory Committee for making Conundrum Day happen for our students.  This year’s event promises to be the best yet!

Students will participate in a morning full of exciting hands-on experiences focused on problem solving, critical thinking, and engineering.

Grades K-2 & 3-5, The Chocolate Touch: A Cardboard Challenge

Teams will reflect on this year’s “Goochland Reads” community-wide book (Patrick Catling’s The Chocolate Touch) and use cardboard, teamwork, and their creativity as the primary means for meeting a unique design challenge.

Grades 6-8 & 9-12, Build a Better Mousetrapscreen-shot-2017-01-10-at-5-48-08-pm

Teams will design and build a Rube Goldberg machine to attempt to conquer an interesting set of circumstances.  A Rube Goldberg machine is “a contraption, device, or apparatus that is deliberately over-engineered to perform a simple task in a complicated fashion.”

Registration is available through this form or via our schools’ websites.
