STEAM Activity: Center of Gravity

BMA students with Mr. Dave Morgan came to visit and led our students in a STEAM activity dealing with gravity.  They reviewed the scientific method with the students and conducted several fun experiments that led to a discussion of "center of gravity." 

In one activity, students had to stand with their heels and back against the door and try to bend over, touch their toes, and pick up a prize.  It is impossible to do (maybe circus performers might do it) due to center of gravity issues.

The students then designed and built towers to see which team could build the highest tower with the materials provided.
