Based on the Book Rosie Revere, Engineer
Saturday, October 12
10 - 11:30 a.m.
Join your daughter for an engaging, hands-on Little Makers Design Challenge. Each activity, led by Peck’s expert faculty, is inspired by a popular children’s book and pairs parents with their children in the fun task of imagining, designing, and building a “real-world” solution for a fictional character.
Designed for girls ages 4-10 (and their parent), our Rosie Revere, Engineer challenge, will inspire creativity while proving that there is more than one way to solve a problem – and to have fun doing it, too! After reading Rosie Revere, Engineer, the teachers will discuss the main events of the story and identify a goal. In collaboration with you, your daughter will complete a design challenge that encourages her resourcefulness and creativity, while coming to the realization that great creations require multiple attempts and perseverance.
This challenge, led by our Kindergarten faculty and our Technology, Innovation and Design Integrator, will be held in our newly renovated Kindergarten building. The goal is to design and build a chair for a stuffed animal.
This challenge will be held in our Osborn Idea & Design Lab and will be led by our Technology, Innovation, and Design teacher. The objective is to create a table that is strong enough to sustain the weight of a heavy book.
