FEBRUARY 20, 2018: Anti-Gravity Vehicles + Scratch Studio

Geek Forest


Anti-Gravity Vehicle: Ages 6-8  
(Morning)
Build a moving vehicle that is anti-gravity. Students will get to build and modify their vehicle to test the speed. The vehicle uses magnetics to levitate it on track. Students will need to measure the exact width of the track to ensure their vehicle doesn’t create too much friction or too much gap. Topic of discussion will be about the properties of magnetics and the physics behind it. Examine the magnetic repulsion that provides the force for levitation.
 
Scratch Studio with Makey Makey: Musical Instruments: Ages 6-8  
(Afternoon)
Imagine designing a piano using household items. In this class, students will engineer their own instrument using a Makey Makey device and materials that can be found in just about any kitchen. Through application of circuitry, acoustical engineering and game design, students discover new ways to interact with technology, all while creating unique designs in a fun collaborative environment.
