Helman Tech and Tinker: Chain-Reaction Contraptions (Grades 3,4,5)

ID : 49243   
« back to classes page
Students will learn to use ordinary materials to design and build “Rube Goldberg machines” (contraptions in which produce a domino effect triggering the next device in the sequence). Fun and amazing, humorous and delightful, these contraptions teach basic physics and engineering concepts while inspiring creative problem solving. Students will work individually, in pairs, and in teams to participate in “challenges” to create chain-reactions like domino mazes and marble runs, and then hook them all together in one epic sequence to perform a simple task. Grades 3,4,5  Instructor: Ash Friend
