Science Museum - Making Sail Boats

This room is called "Connections". It is filled with stations for exploratory work. We settled in with making sailboats and sailing them for about an hour. What fun. There is a big fan at the end of the water channel. We learned that the strength of the wind and the shape of the sail affects how fast the sailboat would go.

When learning is fun and iniitated by the child much learning occurs. Priceless learning moments . . . . .
