Students will learn the principles of engineering with this experience designed specifically to meet 3rd grade Next Generation Science Standards.
3rd Grade Engineering Workshop
This workshop can take place at Mobius Discovery Center or at your location!
Students put their 3rd grade engineering skills to the test by working in groups to complete two hands-on engineering challenges! In the first challenge, students will become structural engineers using Dots candy and toothpicks to construct bridges. In the second challenge, students will become environmental engineers and create a water management system to divert a flood.
Students will receive a science journal to document their ideas, which includes discussion questions for continued teacher-student learning in the classroom. Each student will receive a free pass to visit Mobius Discovery Center in the future!
