This special event is a STEM exploration activity for kids in grades 5-7 with an adult. Participants will work in teams to complete a challenge – to build a reaction contraption – then teams will combine contraptions to create a larger scale Rube Goldberg-like phenomenon! The event will provide opportunity to learn the engineering design process, develop team-building experience, and practice STEM skills.
