Engineering Success!

Click to see all the fun we had on Feb 24th

Mini STEAM: Ages 2-3 with adult

We learned about building strategies including foundations, rebar, and mortar.

Jr. STEAM: Ages 4-6

We mashed up the stories of the three little pigs and little red riding hood to learn about the engineering design cycle.

STEAM Prime: Ages 7-9

They were challenged to build a 3' tall structure that could support 2 lbs.

Sr. STEAM: Ages 10-14

House of cards and tallest freestanding paper structure were both challenging activities.

Thank you to the Museum of Science and Industry, MSI,  for the curriculum and supplies for this month's programs.  In March we will be learning about the properties of bubbles and in April we will return to a MSI-inspired program about Earth's spheres.
