LIVE CHAT

Join us for our live chat to meet some our WiSE representatives and talk all things STEM related. We will be hosting two activities that you can easily do from home and will be available to help you through the activities.

You will need the hollowing materials ready:

Saturday 10am-11am

Sunday 10am-11am

Activity 1 (Science): Magic Blossoming Paper Flowers

  • Markers (water-based, such as Crayola markers)
  • Permanent marker
  • Plate (either paper or ceramic work great!)
  • Scissors
  • The following PDF pages printed out: [link]

Following the instructions provided in the PDF pages, fold the paper flowers and color one side with markers and decorate the other side with a permanent marker! Fold your flower, place it in the plate of water, and watch it blossom!

Activity 2 (Engineering): Tower Construction

Build a tower as high as you can using only two materials! If you want, you can add a time constraint of 15 minutes to make things more interesting.

  • Tin foil
  • Tape Alternative suggested materials (try these out if you don’t have tin foil and tape):
  • Spaghetti
  • Marshmallows
  • String
  • Toothpicks

We are super excited to meet you and would love to see photos of your awesome creations at [email protected]!
