This week, GFA’s Middle School Math Classes were involved in an exclusive project. With the goal to create a more sustainable box for Kellogg’s travel cereal boxes, students were challenged to create a box that had less surface area and greater volume to hold more cereal.
With GFA faculty and staff serving as Kellogg’s “representatives”, students got to present their designs and craft a three dimensional prototype. The Kellogg’s Executive team was led by Middle School Math Teacher Kristen Dee, with special guests including Head of Middle School Andrew Meyer, Assistant Head of Middle School Kathleen Nicholson, Seventh Grade Dean Ronaldo John, and more.
Middle School pitches were scored on prototype design, how easy their presentation was to follow, and how compelling their pitches were. The students were very thorough with their presentations, making math interesting and applicable to real life situations.
