Engineer It

We had a blast at the Lawrence Hall of Science. They had a section called Engineer it! There were a ton of cool hands on engineering activities.
Here GA built a bridge:

She kept removing blocks until the arched bricks were all that were left. It was very sturdy because gravity pulling down on the bricks held the arch in place....



Later we saw an awesome show called:


The show was great fun. We learned about fire, how to put out a fire,

and...

when the facilitator asked for a volunteer...

Here is G helping to light a fire! He did a great job and after helping received a round of applause. He covered his ears on his way back to his chair, but he was smiling. (Look how tall he is, he will be taller than me soon!)
