La Cañada Elementary School 4th-graders in Laurie Hopkins’ class invited their 2nd-grade buddies in Karen Gilmour’s class to celebrate Valentine’s Day by helping Cupid spread love and friendship. Working together, the buddy teams were given a STEM task to design and make a bow and use it to shoot Q-tip arrows at a target. The buddies had to make a blueprint of their design, acquire supplies, construct it, modify it and then test the bow. Everyone was excited to help Cupid. The 4th-graders gave their buddies Valentines before they left.
