Mechanisms that Move (3rd – 5th) – Fall 2019


Mechanisms that Move (Grades 3 – 5)
Fall 2019

Use real tools and uncommon materials to create mechanisms and machines that move!  This season’s projects focus on collaboration and innovation – including safely and effectively using real tools to create moving inventions.  Each session engages an aspect of engineering – simple machines that are integrated into complex mechanisms – to create whimsical and engaging solutions to design challenges.  Projects include scissor lift creatures, spinning color-changing objects, rolling machines made using wood, motorized machines, vibrating creatures, cranky contraptions, simple automata, and air-powered machines.   All projects go home with participants.  Activities include use of tools and materials that you won’t find in school!
