How Does it Work? is a class for little engineers! Each week we will research and explore something in our world that makes us wonder "how does that work?" It could be anything from how does a boat float or how does a parachute fly? First, we'll do the research by reading a book or using the internet to find answers. Next, we will put the research to test by creating our own version of what we have found to see how it works. Who knows? Maybe we'll invent something new!
