Laminations VBoard® is put to the test in the classroom

Great Northern Cares

VBoard in the Classroom

Great Northern Laminations’ Account Manager, Mary Smith, recently visited her son’s 4th grade class at Dryden Elementary in Arlinton Heights, IL, to help with an end-of-the year assignment: to teach the kids about soft skills such as collaboration and problem-solving. This year’s assignment was to work in groups to build, stack, and carry five boxes. Without any extra materials, the 19 students found that carrying the stacked boxes was almost impossible. But with the aid of Laminations’ VBoard edge protection and a few rubber bands, the students were able to quickly and easily carry, and even race their stacked boxes.

Just one of the many ways Laminations VBoard® can solve a stacking challenge!
