About This Activity

Build working replicas of real-world machines—and evaluate scientific principles in action! Using problem-solving, scientific inquiry, and critical-thinking skills, we’ll apply STEM-based learning concepts to our investigation of K'NEX simple machines. Through fun and engaging hands-on activities, we'll explore physics concepts (e.g., applied force, motion) and elementary mechanisms (e.g., levers, pulleys, wheel, axles, inclined planes). Requirements: Bring a snack and a water bottle for breaks Heather Wing teaches at Comanche Elementary School, where she has taught third graders of all abilities since 2001. Since 2004, she has taught students whose primary home language is other than English (PHLOTE). For the last eight years Heather has led and chaired the Student Assistant Team (SAT), working directly with parents and teachers to ensure student success in all classrooms settings. A current National Board for Professional Teaching candidate, Ms. Wing has a bachelor’s of art and science in education from the College of Santa Fe with an endorsement in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL).
