Project Gives Marshfield Kids a Chance to Learn About Engineering

Marshfield Clinic Frozen Castle

March 7, 2019 – The Marshfield Clinic Bright Horizons is encouraging an early love for engineering with their innovative STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) project of constructing a frozen castle made out of recycled milk jugs. Inspired by creating a life-size igloo last year, the teachers and students have begun construction on this year’s castle by collecting recycled milk jugs, and incorporating STEAM lessons along the way

When interviewed about the project, Center Director at Marshfield Clinic Tonya Glamman said, "The hands-on component and the cooperative playing and construction really helps them build the understanding of the cooperation and collaboration that's needed to be successful. When we work together, there's strengths that I may have someone else doesn't have and there's strengths that someone else has that I don't, but collectively we can get that much farther."
