Students combined lessons with food drive

ROCHESTER — Students at Nathaniel Rochester Community School No. 3 combined lessons on science and math with information on local food cupboards last month and collected more than 1,200 pounds of food donations.

The school’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Project-Based Learning Challenge began with a food drive in partnership with Foodlink, according to information from the Rochester City School District. Foodlink challenged the students to collect 700 pounds of food and design a tool to transport the donations to one of its trucks. Each class engineered a different tool to complete the project.
