Shore Road School students in the Bellmore Public School District joined with visitors from John F. Kennedy High School for a series of challenging physics-related activities.

Organized by JFK student Rani Sharma, high schoolers in the foundations of engineering class stopped by Shore Road on May 20 to host the fun and engaging activities. Rani designed three challenges that had Shore Road Shining Star Leaders gather in teams to complete the task at hand. Towers of spaghetti rose higher and higher supported only by tape with a marshmallow on top. Using different snack ingredients, students also designed an efficient rover to explore the surface of Mars. Additionally, paper launchers were made from straws and paper to see which students can send their objects the farthest. Visits from older peers are regularly made through various programs that show Shore Road students how they can step up as leaders in the future.
