CORAL SPRINGS | Middle school students at St. Andrew School put their thinking caps on for the school's first Celebrate Engineering Fair.

In preparation for the fair, one group of students were challenged to either invent a solution to an environmental, health, or physical science problem faced by their school or community, or to make an improvement to an existing solution. They then had to design and build their proposed solution using the engineering design process.

Another group of students were told to envision how a present technology might look in 20 years. They researched its history, current state, and breakthroughs that might make changes possible.

After weeks of research, prototyping, refining, and collaborating, the students showcased their work at the fair, where they explained their designs to parents, teachers, and students from kindergarten through fifth grade.
