Last week, I got the pleasure of traveling to Great Neck, NY for three days to teach engineering concepts using Ban Bao, building blocks similar to Lego with my company All About Learning. It was pretty exciting watching their little eyes pop in enthusiasm to build the pull back frenzy cars. The small group of 11 boys (plus one girl on the last day) were very well behaved for the most part and did an excellent job in their builds. Simple machines and the differences between kinetic energy and potential were some of the topics discussed as they built. And then of course they got to race. =). Check out the building process below.
