The ball rolls down the ramp, turns the switch, that moves
the post, that activates the zip-line, that knocks the ball
down the ramp and into the goal! In this STEAM program,
students will be building Rube Goldberg “Mouse Trap”
chain-reaction machines featuring levers, pulleys, and other
simple machines. Engineering and physics concepts will be
introduced and reinforced through hands-on, innovative
lessons and creative play time. Problem solving skills and
teamwork will be put to the test as the complexity of the
projects increases from week to week. During the final
class, there will be a building competition - How many
contraptions can you connect in the chain reaction? No
previous experience is necessary- just a desire to learn and
build. Each student will receive an award on the last day of
the session, and have the opportunity to earn Energy Belts
to demonstrate their learned skills!
