Virtual READesign Challenge

3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Event Details

We are excited to partner with BrainSTEM Alliance to bring you this exciting hands-on virtual program! Based on the Novel Engineering program by the Tufts University Center for Engineering Education and Outreach, the READesign initiative combines literacy education with STEM education. In this program students will design, build, and test their own prototype devices to solve problems for their ‘client’ – a character from one of their favorite story books! This program's challenge will be based on Peg + Cat: the Penguin Problem by Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson. Supply kits (one per family) will be available for pick up prior to the program date. After registering, you will receive an email with more information about picking up your supply kit.

Ages 5-8
Registration required (one spot per family)
