Child Playing With Lancster Science Factory Exhibit

Homeschool Class: Strength in Shape

September 21 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

$15

September 21: (9:30 – 11:00am or 1:00 – 2:30pm)

Structural Integrity: Strength in Shape

Students will explore the strength found in shapes because structural strength is not just based on the materials an object is constructed of. Students will explore the amazing structural strength of the fragile egg. Students will try to break an egg… It’s not as simple as you think when you follow my directions. Then, students will have the opportunity to walk on a sidewalk of eggs and lay down on a bed of eggs… Hopefully they will not become scrambled in the process. Students will then be given a simple piece of paper and challenged to see how much weight their piece of paper will hold by simply folding it.

Cost is $15 per child, per session

**Lancaster Science Factory members receive a 10% discount on all Homeschool Classes!**
