NDMS STEM students are taking off to new heights!

HURLOCK — The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) students at North Dorchester Middle School are learning about designing and creating air skimmers that can travel far distances. Each student was given a piece of cardboard paper, tape, a pair of scissors, a ruler, and color pencils to build the air skimmer. Prior to building the air skimmers, the students had to analyze the task by using engineering design briefs. This is a concise document that clearly states the problem, explains how the engineer will carry out the solution, and lists the rules and restrictions within which the engineer must perform.
