What we do in this makerspace!

Your child learns about simple machines and how a hydraulic system can be used to transmit power to move parts of a machine. Then she or he gets to experiment with the makerspace build components to see how they connect and work together. Everyone has a build buddy. The real fun begins when engineering objectives are given and everyone gets to design and build their own machine. What’s an objective? It might be something like, “Design and build a hydraulic machine to lift a model spaceship onto its launch pad.” ….or, “Create a hydraulic, articulated arm that could support a video camera for the purposes of safely inspecting earthquake damage.”

There is no end to what your child will come up with! We also explore the design process and consider such things as safety, ethics, selling an idea, cost to build, cost to maintain, specifications and so on.

“Edge on Science takes science off the page and puts it into the hands of your child.”
-Rondalyn Whitney, mom
