Shapes in Nature (Part 1) – Learning in the Making: LIVE!

May 6, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm PDT


Learning in the Making: LIVE! Join Maker Ed for “Shapes in Nature, Part 1” on May 6 at 1:00 PM PST at bit.ly/MakerEdLIVE

Looking for something fun to make at home? Each week we are collecting and curating resources around a topic and the next two weeks are about structural engineering—buildings constructed by animals (May 6) and humans (May 11)!

Join us in Learning in the Making: LIVE! This will be a two part series with special guest educators from the Lawrence Hall of Science!

This week’s “Shapes in Nature” session will be Part 1 of our activity on Newspaper Dowels.

To make your own newspaper dowels, you will need: 

  • Newspaper (other options: paper, magazines or catalogs)
  • Tape (scotch or masking) 
  • Straws (other options: wooden dowels, round chopsticks, markers, pencils)
  • Testing materials (i.e. a can of corn, a book, a water bottle, a shoe)

Visit our blog at makered.org/blog for more inspiration, resources, and project guides! Videos — live and archived — are at bit.ly/MakerEdLIVE
