This winter, Mad Science:Mad Art invites you to float, stretch, swing, and fling. Our twelve-weeks together will take a physics focus. We’ll search for center of gravity as we strike teetering poses and create Calder-esque mobiles. We’ll build marshmallow-launching catapults and slingshots that transfer our potential energy into kinetic creativity. What does a grandfather clock have in common with a swing set? Let’s use their common tie to make designs in sand and on paper. Half-way into our studies we’ll embark on a deep exploration into bridge engineering, drawing strength from tension and trusses, and building models to probe at our understanding. We’ll end with the age-old egg drop challenge, finding inspiration in the fanciful invention drawings of Da Vinci, and then testing out our most practical visions for safe landing.
