Antarctic Penguin Sled STEAM Workshop

Come join us in the land WAY down under, where students will learn all about penguins and use that knowledge to create their own penguin sleds!  Just in time for winter, we'll talk about how penguins stay warm and how they move around, and then we'll bring in the physics of friction and momentum to show kids how they can construct and race their own penguin sleds down our customized sled runs.  How far will yours be able to go?  How far can you reduce your friction, using the supplies available to you?  We look forward to seeing you at this interactive workshop which combines STEAM fundamentals and teambuilding into an action-packed hour of fun and learning, hosted by Challenge Island's award-winning instructors.
