On the day Innovate Kentucky visited the See Blue STEM Camp engineering class, campers were busy with two different activities.
The first was creating a DC motor out of a battery, paper clips, rubber bands and a wire. Using the rubber bands to hold the paper clips in place against both ends of the battery, campers were amazed when the circle of wire suspended between the paper clips began to spin.
The second activity tasked campers with building a free-standing tower out of K’Nex building toys. With the restriction in place that campers couldn’t speak during the construction phase, the task was extra challenging but campers still managed to build some impressive towers.
