Stanley Clark hosts science open house

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- On Tuesday, some 6th graders got to showcase their electric creations.

The Stanley Clark students studied energy as part of their curriculum, and for the final project, students paired up to create electric houses.

Teachers said it was a real hands-on learning experience.

"So they had to do a tour of their electric house and explain the different circuits and how they work.  So it made them experts.  So it was more doing than it was just hearing me talk about it or reading about it," said Patrick Cobb, a science teacher.

Students also learned about alternative energy sources, including a bicycle-powered smoothie maker.
