About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, August 6, 2021.

GIRLS and BOYS: join us as we create and play with simple machines, energy and forces.

Transform your energy into an amazing, swinging, dinging, snapping, rolling, sliding contraption of your own invention! Modify and develop your "Rube Goldberg" chain-reaction machine all week. Take it home on Friday, to share with family and friends.

You keep what you can successfully incorporate into your system: mousetraps, pulleys, toy cars, marbles, balloons, birthday candles and more.

Every day you'll acquire knowledge regarding types of energy: elastic, magnetic, electrical, mechanical, sound, light, and chemical as you're allowed to explore with energy-laden doohickeys. Be prepared to harness your "superpowers" using levers, ramps, and other simple machines.

Above all, go home everyday empowered with new STEM abilities, and fond memories of the times you will have with your new--and old--Science-Dipity friends from home-schools, private schools and public schools.

Your teacher will be Mr. Baker, active science educator.

Pre-requisites: Enthusiasm, inquisitiveness and positivity.
