All fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth graders at the Williston Central School competed in the challenge. Students worked in small groups to solve a variety of problems from the slowest parachute drop to picking up marshmallows with a mechanical arm, said teacher Tad Dippel. Volunteer engineers judged the events both days. ‘It proved to be an engaging and positive learning experience for the students,’ Dippel said.
