At Huck, we're always looking for ways to make kids LOVE science! In this exciting hands-on science & engineering class we will build a variety of toys and use them to demonstrate major scientific concepts such as energy, electricity, light, gravity, motion, friction, magnetism and simple machines. Each student will construct and take home a science experiement in every class!
We'll learn all about flight one week; how does the flow of air interact with objects to lift them off th ground? What does the shape of the wings of aircraft have to do with flight? We'll learn the basics, and then make our own foam gliders! We'll experiment with weight to determine if the glider will fly differently with more weight in the front, middle or back. What can make our gliders "fly" longer? Another week we'll study the concepts of positive and negative magnetism as we make and test magnetic toy racers. What causes the magnets to attract or repel? We also learn about roller coasters, rockets and force, the physics behind balloon racers and so much more! Come join our class as we play with science; the very best way to turn a child into a scientist!
