We're celebrating National Engineers Week (and MA vacation week) with some Everyday Engineering! Construct and create with repurposed and recycled materials.


Sat. 2/15 & Sun. 2/16: Engineer a Bird Feeder - Design and build your own birdfeeder to bring home and feed your feathered friends in your own backyard!

Mon. 2/17 & Tues. 2/18: Float and Fly - Craft some simple contraptions - paper helicopters and hoop gliders - that harness the power of air to float and glide.

Wed. 2/19 & Thur. 2/20: Indoor Fort Building - What can you do with clothespins, sheets, and cardboard boxes?  Just about anything!  Jump in and help build an ever-changing, room-sized blanket fort.

Fri. 2/21 & Sat. 2/22: Tinfoil Ferries - Investigate floating by building tinfoil boats and loading them with pennies until they sink. How many pennies can your boat hold?
