CMS Students Make Toys for Kids in Haiti

This year, the seventh grade Science students designed and created toys for children in Haiti through an organization called, "Haiti Lumiere De Demain". The toys had to meet certain constraints based on the current infrastructure and socioeconomic makeup of Haiti, and the curriculum in the seventh grade Physics unit. Seventh graders collaborated in groups in order to design a toy that would overcome these constraints.

While constructing the toys, students overcame many other obstacles including planning the correct size and scale of items, precisely measuring and cutting materials, and how mass and speed might affect the final product. The toys were created with various materials, including a 3D printer, wood, PVC piping, and screws. Some examples of the toys are: airplane, target practice, scooter, skateboard, foosball table, racing cars, and pinball machine. The toys are set to be delivered to the organization in Haiti on April 10th. Click HERE to view pictures of the students working on the toys!
