Mike Pailler's 9th/10th grade honors geometry class held a "proof party" where students build 2-column proofs to verify geometric theorems using logic and reasoning in a mathematically festive environment!!
MHS Students help fifth and sixth graders explore
STEM careers at STEM Expo 2017
Members of the Mansfield High School Engineering class and the Student Service Corps led several activities during the Envision the Future STEM Expo 2017 in which eighty-five fifth- and sixth-graders took part in activities linked to STEM majors and careers. Twenty nine presenters from the Mansfield school district and corporations from southeastern Massachusetts ran workshops and activities related to STEM topics.
MHS Engineering students Sean Patel, Kat Semple and Dan Nelson and Mrs. Elofson challenged 5th and 6th graders to design and build something to carry a Ping-Pong ball from the top of a zip line to the bottom in less than four seconds while learning about friction and balance.
Mrs. Fournier, a STEM expo co-chair, and Student Service Corp members helped with three workshops and five activity tables for students at the March 18th event. Thirty one members of the volunteer group assisted during the three hour expo. Activities included testing seismic safe buildings on an earthquake table, the non-Newtonian fluid, a Lego challenge, hydrophilic and hydrophobic interactions and a spaghetti marshmallow tower challenge.
The event finished with a closing demonstration of math and music by the Envision the Future team followed by a demonstration by members of Mansfield High School’s Percussion Ensemble.

WE HAVE A NEW RECORD!!
There is a new record for the number of engineering textbooks supported
by a deck designed using only 6 strips of cardboard, 2 straws, one sheet
of copy paper and 12 inches of masking tape—74 books!!
Proud deck designers of the record-breaking design are Andrew Walsh, Peter Gartland, and Patrick Dean.
In this section of engineering, students explore the concepts of live
load, safety factor and compressive force, and material strength through
Our second place design by Tucker Olen, Sam Cavicchi, and Haig Megerdichian held 53 books.
