UNION — Teamwork and its importance in solving problems and overcoming challenge was the lesson learned by some students at Foster Park Elementary School recently.

The students in Mrs. Hughey’s Gifted & Talented class Foster Park Elementary School participating in a class project designed to help them learn about teamwork and the importance of instilling it.

The project, which was undertaken by the students in their E.M.E.R.G.E. class, involved the student learning how to maneuver cups into a pyramid without touching them with their hands. They were only allowed to use string attached to a rubber band while they attempted to build their apparatus.

Learning to communicate well and working together are important skills each student needs to cultivate in order for them to become successful solvers.
