STEAM Saturdays: Zip Line Engineering

STEAM Saturdays is a series of monthly enrichment workshops for children in grades 3 to 6 that will explore the STEAM disciplines—science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Taught by Belmont Day faculty, STEAM Saturdays will focus on innovation, collaboration, and creativity!

In this engaging workshop, students will tackle an engineering challenge. First, they will learn about the physics of zip lines and how gravity, tension, friction, and slope impact how well a zip line works. Then they'll build and test their own LEGO design.

STEAM Saturdays 2

The Apple Annihilator

Potential + Kinetic = Mechanical. Energy frequently changes form from one to another, but it can never be created nor destroyed. In this STEAM activity, students will learn about the physics of a wrecking ball and get to build one themselves! We'll discuss the Law of Conservation of Energy as well as Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion, which will guide them as they construct their own wrecking ball. Each participant will take home their apple wrecking ball device at the conclusion of the workshop.
