Ready Springs students honored for engineering rescue boats for flood victims
April 16, 2017
It's Trinity Keeble's job to get her students interested in science.
She must be doing something right.
Keeble's transitional kindergarten class at Ready Springs Elementary School recently won the Leonardo di Vinci Award for Artistic Achievement at the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools 2017 STEAM Expo.
Students studied the science of rain and flooding and how to stay safe during natural disasters. Then they used their artistic, math and technological skills to engineer rescue boats designed to save flood victims.
The kindergarten students, realizing flood victims need clean drinking water, food and warm blankets, raised money for those emergency supplies all while neighboring counties were dealing with evacuations during the potential Oroville Dam crisis.
