Opening the Door

At the East Whittier City School District, we are preparing our students to be 21st Century citizens by teaching them five essential skills: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, Critical thinking and Community. These skills will open the door to our students' future education, careers and other important areas of their lives.

Calling All Engineers

or the months of November and December, we want you to make a car that can propel (move) itself forward. This means that you do not have to push it or place it at the top of an incline (hill, slide, etc.) to get it started. We want you to think about how the car functions AND how the car looks so try to make it look really cool. This is an optional project that parents and students can work on together during the months of November and December. How many engineering challenges can you complete by the end of the school year?
