Have you ever marveled at the air around you? Can you make a ball levitate? Can you make an egg jump from one container to the next? You'll experiment with the power of air as you discover how airplanes fly and birds soar. You'll also learn techniques for making and testing hot air balloons in the classroom!
What can you get to balance? Explore balance, movement, and design by constructing sculptures in the style of Alexander Calder's mobiles. We will compare and contrast symmetry and asymmetry in design and weight, and explore cause and effect by trying to balance weights and physically work out visual choices.
