Fourth graders participating in the AMES Academy program at Beaufort Elementary recently completed one of their most challenging projects to date. They designed and built the framework for a personal electric car. In order to do this, they had to research aerodynamic principles, draw a blueprint to scale, cut the wood frame using a saw, and then gluing the 3-D frame together. Mrs. Marianne Blake, their Science teacher said, ”…everyone did a great job on their cars. Besides lots of learning, a generally good time was had by all.”

The AMES Academy is a magnet program for gifted and high achieving students. The program is based on rigorous math and science foundational skills taught through the use of science and engineering projects.
