Be A Builder – Participants use two dimensional blueprints and wooden blocks to build a three dimensional structure. Blueprints come in a variety of levels of difficulty ranging from Easy to Very Difficult.

Pulleys – Participants wrap a rope around various pulleys to determine how additional pulleys reduce the amount of work needed to move an object.
