Crash victim story was ‘beautiful’

Science Day was a highlight for students

The Siemens Co. recently sponsored a Science Day for fourth grade students at Mukilteo Elementary. The purpose of the day was to promote math and science and to get students interested in engineering.

The day’s activities were centered around an egg drop competition. Students used up to five different materials, varying from raw spaghetti to rubber bands, and were encouraged to use their engineering skills, creative thinking and teamwork to design a structure that could prevent an egg from breaking, when dropped from a height of up to 25 feet.

Students were able to use the different materials available, provided by Siemens, to explore the concepts of momentum, impulse, force and energy to this project.

There were about 20 Siemens employee volunteers at the event whose enthusiasm and love for science ensured student success.

We want to thank Siemens, George Pfeiffer, Eric Rautenberg, and their team for providing our students with an experience, which likely was one of the highlights of their school year.

Congrats, Beacon publisher

You've buried the lead. This [“Beacon publisher named Entrepreneur of the Year,” The Beacon, page 3, June 5] should be front page, above the fold.

Hurray for Arch!
