In East Asheville, off Tunnel Road, not far from the new library.
In this class, students will learn about air and air quality through hands-on activities, discussion, and writing. Students will engineer a device to prove that air has mass. Through experimentation, they will discover that air takes up space and exerts pressure. They will observe how materials move through and interact with air using helicopters, pinwheels, and paper airplanes. Students will then investigate causes and effects of air pollution, brainstorm ways to reduce air pollution in our area, and work in small groups to develop a product (PSA, radio commercial, etc.) that will help influence people to reduce air pollution.
Participation in this class will also offer students the ability to participate in creating a large-scale art installation which will be on display October 2-10 along the Hominy Creek Greenway for a new event called Hominy Rising. http://fohcg.org/join-us/arts-awareness/

Take your costume to the next level! Use the engineering process to design and build a costume piece that moves, makes a sound, or lights up. For this class, it is helpful if the student comes knowing what their costume is. They will create a piece of that costume or an accompanying prop.
