A quick update on Mrs. Nothstine’s class! The Springboro Junior Students (SJHS), using an augmented reality sandbox provided by the Ohio Natural Energy Institute, finished their houses this week, creating lakefront properties. The rest of this week, Mrs. Nothstine’s students will work on creating a "Zillow" post in Google Slides to each sell their lakefront properties.
The students had to create supports out of popsicle sticks to hold their houses on the sand. In addition, they used a level to make sure the houses were stable and secure. The class then discussed what would happen over time with weathering and erosion and how their supports might need to change based on where the “rain” fell on their house.
