Using Their Noodles:‘Pasta-bilities’ endless at Spaghetti Bridge Challenge

Hold the red sauce and pass the glue. The competition for the Spaghetti Bridge Challenge at Global Learning Charter Public School (GLCPS) was stiff as an uncooked lasagna noodle.
“Students in grades 5 through 8 worked in teams to design and construct bridges from pasta and adhesive within certain parameters,” explained Polly Zajac, 5th grade science teacher. “Their supplies consisted of one pound of spaghetti and four ounces of wood glue per bridge-building team.
The judging began on December 18th.

Internet for All Students

Students will no longer have to search for Wi-Fi to complete assignments when they don't have internet access. GLCPS recently received a Homework Gap Grant from the wireless provider Kajeet® for SmartSpot® which provides safe mobile connectivity so students can access the internet.  GLCPS is one of only 30 schools nationwide to receive this grant, and one of three in Massachusetts. .
