Science teacher Ms. Festa facilitated the grade 5 students as they participated in the eMerge Showcase which is a STEM initiative in partnership with Merge EDU.  The students built a renewable energy hotel in Minecraft using only recyclable and renewable products.  Once the interactive hotel was built, the students exported the hotel into the Merge cube which allows you to hold digital 3D hotel, enabling a new way to learn and interact with the digital world.
