Tenth Street Third Grader Submits Winning Sea Creature Creation in Phipps Fairchild Challenge!

Several third-grade students from Tenth Street Elementary recently participated in Phipps Conservatory’s Fairchild Challenge this school year. The Fairchild Challenge consists of different multi-disciplinary challenges focused on environmental education. “The Challenge invites students to investigate the thorniest environmental issues, devise imaginative and effective responses to them, and take action to address them.” 
Students who submitted work to Phipps Conservatory are now invited to spend an evening at Phipps with their teachers and families on May 16, 2024. They will see their work displayed while meandering through the Conservatory and enjoying some appetizers. It will be a fun, culminating celebration! 
Extra special recognition goes to Piper Machen, for winning the last challenge, Sea Creature Creations.  Piper’s three-dimensional model of a jellyfish-inspired creature earned her the elementary winner of the area.

Congratulations to Piper and all 14 Tenth Street School students who entered the challenges this year. We are so proud of you all!
