Welcome to the STEAM Lab. Redwood Preparatory STEAM Lab is a place for students to learn, explore and create. Students use the design process to study the STEAM concepts of science, technology, engineering, art and math. Most projects are taught in a hands-on, project based learning style.
My website is updated with new activities each Wednesday evening. Activities follow along with in-class units.
Build a Building Than Can Survive An Earthquake
Design and build a two story building. Build it on a piece of paper. Build the house sturdy enough that when you pull out the piece of paper, it stays standing!
--First, brainstorm and draw your ideas for your device.
Think about these things:
*What materials will you use to build your house? Building blocks? Legos? Cardboard?
*How will you connect and attach the
*How tall will your house be? What size piece of paper be?
--Gather your materials. You may use any items you have at home. Be sure to ask first.
--Build your house. It must have four sides, at least 2 stories, and a roof.
--Place your house on the paper. Quickly, pull out the paper. Did your house stay standing?
--Do you need to make adjustments or modifications. If you change your design, be sure to add that to your design drawing.
Be Creative! Have fun!
Hi! I'm Lori Head. I am the STEAM teacher at Redwood Prep. In 2018, we started the STEAM Lab. I have to admit it is my dream job. I love helping the kids learn new things and seeing their excitement about their world. My classroom in often loud, always a bit messy and full of fun and learning.
