Class Experience

Students will:
✦ learn and apply the steps of the engineering design process
✦ review 3-D shapes
✦ be able to verbalize what worked didn't in their design,
✦ learn science concepts related to forces and motion, specifically gravity
I am a certified, veteran teacher having over 20 years of teaching experience. I have a particular passion for science. I enjoy sharing that passion with young learners. It is my hope that my lessons inspire a love of science in my students as well.
Materials needed: ✦ box of toothpicks (round toothpicks work best, as opposed to the flat ones) ✦ bag of miniature marshmallows (Semi-stale, semi-dried out ones work best. I recommend opening the bag and letting the marshmallows dry out a bit the day before class, if possible. If you aren't able do that you CAN use a fresh bag.) ✦paper and pencil for sketching design ideas
45 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
I recommend the round toothpicks because they are sturdier; however, they are quite sharp. Please remind your child to be careful.
