Making Motion (Grades PK – 2)
Explore how tools and materials can be combined into mechanisms, and further integrated into machines that move! Experiment with levers that lift, push and pull to create creatures that extend and contract; invent color changing spinning tops; store energy in wind-up creatures that roll and crawl; explore how rubberbands and propellers make thing move and fly; use compressed air to launch rockets into the sky – and more! All projects go home with participants. Activities include use of tools and materials that you won’t find in school!
