Fall 2019 Explorations Schedule

September 17–October 15, 2019

Taking Flight

Tuesday 9/17/2019
Investigate how air interacts with materials to make them float and fly. From making parachutes to making and testing flying contraptions in wind tunnels, to constructing kites, you’ll make many discoveries about the power of air and wind. 

Playing Around with Polymers

Tuesday 10/1/2019
What is a polymer? Do the properties of polymers change when they’re made from different substances? We’ll investigate the properties of this special material by making a number of different polymers and comparing their bounciness, stretchiness, and more. 

Building a Monument

Tuesday 10/8/19
Use your own body to understand tension and other architectural forces in this constructive exploration. Discover elementary structural principles and model-building techniques as you create your own unique architectural structures.

Wind Carts

Tuesday 10/15/19
Let the wind blow! Engineer wind carts to harness the power of the wind. Are two sails better than one? Four wheels better than three? Let’s find out!

Class topics vary from semester to semester.
