Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School fourth-grade students in Allison Licata’s class recently transformed commonly discarded items into creative inventions. 

Seeking inspiration from the YouTube video, “Caine’s Arcade,” the students applied what they have been learning in science about simple machines to create an arcade game using recycled cardboard boxes. The students worked in teams to create working simple machines – and some even created complex machines.  

“It was very impressive, what they accomplished,” Ms. Licata said. “The students did an outstanding job and we had a lot of fun.”
