The answer is Yes!! Second grade students become filter experts in the engineering lesson in this article. It is amazing what young students can do. As adults we need to allow young students to reach beyond our expectations. This article describes thoroughly how second graders tested a series of filters given to them for effectiveness and then created their own filter design.
