Class Experience

Bring as many of the materials as possible: a piece of computer paper, scissors, a wire coat hanger, string, a metal spoon, a balloon, a hex nut that fits in the balloon, a plastic cup (not thick plastic as you'll need to poke a hole it), string, paper towel, water, paper clip, pushpin. Some students may need assistance with some of the activities. 

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
