How class will work
Green Road Pottery will host each class using Zoom. A private invitation will be sent to parents 1 hour before the start of the session. Students are not required to have their video or audio activated. In the event there is a security issue, the session will be ended and a new invitation will be sent.
Students will follow instructions to build a lever and learn about mechanical advantage.
Build a Lego trebuchet from the provided kit. We will discuss the parameters that effect the success of the trebuchet.
The class includes a new Lego set 42104 – Race Truck. Some additional materials will be provided with the Lego kit. All instructions will be provided as a digital download.
