Schuylerville first- and second-graders learned about engineering, creativity and perseverance through a new book donated to the elementary school library. On Tuesday, March 6, James Alheim from Stone Bridge Iron & Steel, Inc. visited the library to read “Rosie Revere, Engineer” to one first grade and one second grade library class. The book tells the story of a girl named Rosie who may seem quiet during the day, but at night she is a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets, and dreams of becoming a great engineer. Alheim read the book, answered questions and donated a copy of the book to the library, on behalf of Stone Bridge Iron & Steel, Inc.
As a follow up project, students drew pictures of inventions they would like to create and sent them along with a thank you note to Alheim and the company. Click below to see photos from the visit and some of the creative inventions.
