This past weekend some of our young patrons learned about ancient Greek architecture while putting their STEM skills to the test! Learning the true strength and genius behind those iconic Greek columns, participants used paper cups as columns and cookie sheets as the “roofs” in between each story or level of their building:
In between each level, to make sure their building was sturdy, they tested its strength with their own weight:
They even tried two children at a time!
Their structure was able to reach 6 stories high! Our participants needed a small stepladder to get to the top and test it out. Below are a few more pictures from the program. We hope everyone had fun! 🙂
