Inventors Lab Online
May 20, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pmFree
In this online version of Inventors Lab, kids ages 8-12 will design and build compound machines with cranks, gears and levers. We will combine a foundation of learning about six simple machines (inclined plane, wedge, lever, wheel and axle, screw, pulley) with inspiration from our local environment here in Brooklyn. Found objects will be taken apart and repurposed as our building materials. Through the process of tinkering, experimenting, trying, failing and trying again, kids will experience the real process of creation and innovation.
What you’ll need:
Recyclables (cardboard boxes, plastic bottles, egg cartons, cereal boxes, etc.)
Optional materials (not needed, but a plus):
Glue gun + glue sticks
Discarded small electronics (no computers)
