Russell Elementary’s Second annual “Canstruction” was a huge success! Canstruction is a school-wide canned food drive challenge. Teams designed and built objects using the cans they collected. Each class was expected to use the engineering design process to construct their design.
Russell had 14 teams who participated in the 2014 challenge. The winner in the primary grades was Ms. Lauderdale’s team who made a castle. The intermediate level winners were Ms. Steiner and Ms. Winsett’s team who made a penguin iceberg sculpture. The construction competition allowed students the opportunity to build, create, and donate. Russell Elementary donated 990 cans to the Atlanta Food Bank, and the winning teams took the donation to Turner Field.
