This program invites students to create a complex chain-reaction machine, using familiar materials in unusual ways. They will work in small teams as they experiment with the transfer of energy. Each team will then connect their section of the mechanism to other sections, creating an interconnected apparatus. This educational and playful workshop encourages critical thinking, collaboration, resiliency, and communication skills.
