Description

Explore inertia, gravity and centripetal force by launching race cars and spinning bike wheels, and hurling ping-pong balls with rubber band powered catapults. Learn about tension and compression, experiment to see what the strongest shapes are, and even make an earthquake proof building from toothpicks and marshmallows. People aren’t the only ones who build things—robots can too…once we build them! See how a robot can follow a maze of lines, pick up toys, or even listen and react to sounds! Build your own robot hand to continue the exploration at home. Discover different aspects of energy, such as potential and kinetic energy. Many more topics will be covered throughout the term.

Please register with Brattleboro Parks and Recreation. There is a $15 fee for out of town students.
