LAUREN MCMULLEN: Hi, my name's Lauren McMullen, and I invented the screw stick. I love playing lacrosse, but I hate bringing my stick on the bus because it's too big to fit in my backpack. So I made a lacrosse stick be able to screw apart... into four separate pieces... to be able to fit into my backpack.
To make my invention, I first took my brother's old lacrosse stick and cut it into these four pieces. And then I took a plastic, P.V.C., which is a piping and glued it into the hollow center.
Then I took a metal screw and screwed it into the P.V.C. Last, I took this elastic and threaded it down the center, so you won't lose your pieces when it's apart. So now it will fit right into my backpack.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
