On January 24, William Burnett Elementary families gathered for its fourth annual Family Engineering Night. Eighty-three people, comprised of 28 Bulldog families, joined together for an interactive evening of learning, collaborating, and engineering. Their challenge was to design and build a boat that could travel and carry cargo. We cheered on families as they followed the Engineering Design Process to tinker with their designs, trying to increase their boat’s speed and the amount of cargo it could carry. Our administrators and extended MUSD family joined in enthusiastically, working together to design and test boats of their own, building community across both school and district.
