4th grade builds a city in Mr. Arevalo's class!

A new city called Greenville was being established. The city wanted to get all of their energy from renewable energy, specifically wind energy. Thus, companies (student teams) had to create a functional windmill with a budget of $500.00. As such, students got to work on STEM and financial literacy at the same time. After windmills were created, they had to develop an advertisement as well. Then, they had to present their product to the rest of their peers and staff members.
