CREO is a Computer Aided Design (CAD) Program used by engineers to design products such as cars, rockets, aircrafts, cell phones, etc. On Tuesday, October 13th, fifth graders from Coosa Elementary headed to Starbase to learn how to use this very sophisticated software program. Mrs. Pender’s class was taught what it was like to be an engineer and they had to create and assemble their own Department of Defense mission vehicle.
Students in Mrs. Isley’s class were instructed on how to design and build both floating and beam bridges. By using scientific methods, and the program, these students were able to create a bridge that could withstand 50 grams of weight and stand at least 1.5 centimeters off the water.
