Homeschool Explorations Building with Balance: Cantilevers (ages 6-8)

November 28, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

The workshop on cantilevers and balancing sculptures sounds like an engaging and educational experience for students. In this session, participants will have the opportunity to discover how architects employ cantilevers to create structures that seem to defy gravity, such as buildings that extend over rivers or ravines.

Following an introduction to these architectural concepts, the workshop will delve into the principles of balance. Students will then apply their newfound knowledge by constructing their own balancing sculptures. This hands-on activity allows them to experiment with design, weight distribution, and stability, fostering a deeper understanding of architectural and engineering principles.

Overall, the workshop aims to inspire creativity, critical thinking, and an appreciation for the ingenuity behind architectural design. Participants are likely to gain insights into the structural elements that contribute to the stability and aesthetic appeal of buildings.
