New Adventures in Learning Ideas on PBS Parents

Suspension Bridge Engineering Project People on Bridge_PBS Parents

Not sure I’ve mentioned it here on OWTK yet, but I’d love for you to know that all summer long I’m over on PBS Parents sharing cool ideas to avoid the summer slide with unique math, writing and, today, engineering projects for your young kids.

Check out my latest, the Upcycled Suspension Bridge Project, that will teach some basic civil engineering ideas and have your children contemplating form, function and aesthetics of constructing a bridge between toy towns.

You might also be interested in a bit of sabermetric stat geek fun with my Backyard Baseball Math and/or a summer book writing project to keep long-distant connections strong.
