Science Buddies:

This Web site is designed primarily for science fair projects, but these activities also make great projects for 4-H science displays or science learning activities that relate to 4-H projects. Projects are by grade-levels so they're age-appropriate. There are discussions about topics like scientific method, doing research and constructing a hypothesis. It also has an "Ask an Expert" feature.

2016 Friday Workshops

Friday, April 1, 2016 - 10:00am
Event Type: 

House of Cards

Summary: Build various architectural shapes out of cards to discover which will create the most stable structure!

Students will learn about the concepts of tension and compression. They will then be asked to choose a geometric shape and then construct a building of note cards that only uses the chosen shape. Each building will be tested to determine how much weight it can sustain. Students will then be able to discuss which geometric shapes are the most stable.
