Gr.3’s Built for Success

On Monday, the Grade 3’s visited the Ontario Science Center.  We participated in a Structures Workshop where we learned building basics.  In different groups, we investigated the strength and stability of structures. We experimented with compression, tension and load and how these all affect the stability of a structure. We also designed and built bridges, towers and arches using various materials.  We learned that all human and natural structures have structural limits and that builders must keep this in mind! Last, we explored the different galleries.  Take a look at all of the hands-on activities that were available to us at the Ontario Science Center.
