If you want to teach a little engineering to young elementary students, you need something visual, fun and let’s face it…it has to move. So, our instructor/maker NATE LONG cooked up this awesome way for kids to learn about the forces that act upon a pivot…weight, balance, placement…etc. We’re still working on the finished product, which will have markers for students to gauge how the placement of weights affects rotation and we’re planning some cool ways to explore weight and density through the objects they can place on the balance beam. We’re bringing this to our STEAMapolooza at Milton School in Rye next week…we should get some interesting feedback from our first testers. #letsdostuff #STEAMAPOLOOZA IMG_3501
