Students love to send cars, balls and other items down ramps! The faster the better, but did you know that this favorite playtime activity is also an awesome science lesson for kids of all ages? We were able to explore ramps, angles, and friction during our STEAM class with just a few simple materials. This physics activity was a fun way to introduce friction, ramps, and angles to our students through hands-on play! It also allowed our students to have the freedom to think critically and creatively. They were able to test their ramp designs and be able to fail and try again in a safe environment. Through STEAM and activities like this our students are gaining real life knowledge, like the value of failure as a learning opportunity. Take a look at our experiment through our pictures and videos.
