I am going through some of the activities we have done years ago and writing posts on how to do some of these hands-on projects to learn skills in a variety of topics.
Starting soon I will be posting a series of posts all about building and some basic physical science concepts related to building structures. It is a collection of fun, simple hands-on activities for pre-K-8th grade. Here are the topics we'll cover...
- Compression, Tension and Torsion in Building Materials
- Shapes and Building
- Paper Bridges and Loads
- Cables and Suspension Bridges
- Geodesic Domes: Triangles,Toothpick Structures and Dowel Designs
- Dams Under Pressure
- Building Tunnels
- Balconies and Awnings
