Event description

Description

Design Focus: Locomotion (bring your Imagination and any recyclables to use as wheels and axles)

Kids of all ages (and their families) are invited to design, tinker, and make something amazing out of cardboard, recycled materials and imagination! This event is part of the school year’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) initiative and Maker Movement, an integral part of our 2016-18 curriculum plan and a follow-up to Fall's successful Global Cardboard Challenge Family Workshop (October 2016).

Why Participate?

The Global Day of Design - Design Challenge gives children an opportunity to collaborate, learn, and build as a response to a problem or question they have.

What to Bring?

Your imagination….

We'll have some material on-hand. If you can, please bring used cardboard boxes (big & medium sizes), paper towel and toilet paper tubes, egg cartons, tape (duct, masking, packing), and scissors. Mrs. Vecchioni and the STEAM Team also uggests that "makers" think about potential designs and bring any recyclables that may help bring all your ideas to life (bottle caps for wheels, paper towel/wrapping paper rolls for axles et al).
