EUREKUS STEAM CURRICULUM - Simple Machines:
STEM Lesson + (2) Art Projects!
Blow & Go Racers is the first lesson in our Simply Machines curriculum. Learners have a blast exploring engineering and simple machines through this action-packed Maker-based program! Blow & Go Racers guide learners on a robust series of investigations about how things are built, move and work. Through engaging art-making, learners are introduced to the basics of engineering, classical mechanics, design process and foundational science principles.
The Teaching Guide includes 2 Art Projects - A Guided Engineering Project and Open Design Challenge - to take learners through the making, testing, evaluating and re-design process. Blow & Go Racers is also a fun project for informal education, enrichment providers and to simply explore at home.
