A group of middle-school students in Ohio this week used hula-hoops and math equations to figure out the crop yield of a soybean farm they were visiting. The students also made an egg catcher out of paper and tape. "We wanted to show [the kids] that science, technology, engineering and math are used in [everyday] life, especially in agriculture," said Janice LoRaso, assistant director at The Works, which helped arrange the field trip.
