Makayla Gardner, Grace Blalack, Tori Warner and Kobey Holbert of Bullitt Lick express excitement with their First Place Finish. Eastside students Jordan Galitsky and Maddy Lawson craft their plan for the STEM Challenge. Each team was required to design and create a container that would slide down a zip line and deposit a fresh egg as close to a target as possible. Teams were given the exact same materials to work with and a two hour time limit. Parental help was not allowed giving BAMS students Jacob Harrison and Eli Marks complete independence.
