Mr. Russell’s Classroom: Explore the science of mechanical engineering

It’s time for another science lesson in Mr. Russell’s classroom. J-Stace the Science Ace along with his friend, Jennifer Thompson from Engineering Camp Charlotte showed us the science of mechanical engineering by creating a wheelchair that can move a doll over rough, outdoor terrain. The best part? You can try it at home with the kiddos!

Here’s what you need:

  • Assorted household materials: string, pipe cleaners, dowels, straws, paper bowls, paper plates, craft sticks, paper clips, computer paper, cardstock, recyclable items, tape, glue.
