STEAM Club
Our STEAM Club is off to a great start. The first week the kids worked with Zoob Challenge. Zoob is an open-ended building toy, it's five basic pieces snap together 20 different ways. Zoob Challenge takes open ended building in a new direction, as young builders experiment with Zoob pieces to solve specific challenges based on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills. The first challenge was to build a car and figure out three different ways to make the car move across the table. When this challenge was met the participants then had to build something that made the car stop at the edge of the table before it fell off. The second week participants worked on two different projects. One group worked with Keva planks and constructed three structures that could be connected. Once that challenge was completed the group built a boat with the planks. The other group worked with Straws and Connectors to make a rocket ship. Kids from K-8 are encouraged to join us on Saturday mornings from 10:30 until 12:00 for STEAM Club.
