Students Win Fluor Engineering Challenge Greenville Drawing
Students at Summit Drive Elementary School are the proud winners of the 2019 Fluor Engineering Challenge Greenville Drawing. Working with limited materials and their imaginations, the students designed a volley ball machine using only cups, tape, wooden pencils, craft sticks and paper. The winning team won a $1,000 grant from Fluor for Summit Drive Elementary.
The Fluor Engineering Challenge was created to help educators meet the latest standards for science and engineering literacy. This year’s Fluor Engineering Challenge was originally developed by engineers from Fluor’s office in Southern California as part of the global company’s annual employee competition held in celebration of Engineers Week. With the help of an expert team of scientists and educators from Science Buddies, this employee competition was adapted to provide students the opportunity to experience how real-life engineers design solutions, and to show students first-hand how fun engineering can be.
Third and fourth graders worked in teams to build volleyball machines during their weekly STEAM lab time. Projects focused on the engineering design process. Students worked to design, build, test, and redesign their machines. Teams able to achieve a score with their machines entered the drawing. “We would not have been successful without all of their hard work and determination”, said Susan Merrill, STEAM lab teacher. “We had more than 20 teams who entered the challenge drawing. We are so lucky to have such a great group of young engineers!”
The winning team, Candy Gods, is comprised of 4 third graders: Harper P., Jeremiah A., Rashod J., and Paden R.. The team prides themselves on having the confidence to overcome the hard parts and push through. Their favorite part of the challenge was being able to work with their friends.

TEXT MESSAGES FOR SCHOOL CANCELLATIONS AND EMERGENCY SCHEDULE CHANGES
In an effort to better communicate with parents during times of emergency the Greenville County Schools Communications Department has created an English and Spanish form to be completed by families wishing to receive text message alerts about school closings. The form is only for parents who currently have a landline listed as their “Primary Contact Phone” and wish to receive texts about school cancellations or other emergency schedule changes. Parents who already list a cellular phone as their primary contact will not need to take action to receive this service.
