Save the Cherry Pie- Engineering Design

We started an engineering design task today to "save the cherry pie".  Students are working hard to design and create a hand pollinator that can be used to pollinate 7 ft. cherry trees because of the bee shortage (a neighbor put out pesticide to kill the bees).  We will create and test them tomorrow!  Students only have a limited supply of each item and there is a cost associated with each, so after we test our products, we will compare the amount of pollen it transferred as well as the cost of their pollinator to decide which group had the best hand pollinator for the cherry tree farmer to purchase!
