Science Fair Winner
We are proud of our SST students. Rammy a sixth grader in one of our SST schools recently made 1st place in the science fair. He made a Rube Goldberg machine and took the time to describe the purpose of his project: "A Rube Goldberg has to accomplish a simple task like popping a balloon, but it has to do it in a complicated manner. [I used] 4 inclined planes and a tube I put a metal screw down the tube and it will fall down doing a chain reaction. [The screw] will fall into this platform which is connected to a stick and at the end of the stick, there is a needle. Once the screw lands on the platform it pushes up the needle which pops the balloon. Our science teacher showed us videos on it and I thought it was pretty cool. I used pipes, wooden plants, cardboard, staples, paint, tape, a needle, a balloon, a screw, string, and plastic
