Ellie Hughes, left, helps Ava Griffith-Lercher, fourth-graders in Mrs. Langham’s class at Highland Elementary, save “Fred the Worm.” Also pictured, Maya Pollard works on her own Fred. Saving Fred is an edible team-building STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics)activity with students using the Scientific Method. Fred, a not-so-smart gummy worm, cannot swim. His boat (a plastic cup) has capsized and his life jacket (a gummy lifesaver) is under the boat. Students must work to save Fred using only paper clips.
