Hands-on Learning

Woodhull Elementary School students in Shannon Rickard's elementary class engaged in hands-on learning about simple and complex machines during a recent visit to the Science Museum of Long Island in Plandome.

Using LEGO Dacta Technics Kits and assisted by a museum instructor, students built their own simple machines and joined them together to produce a complex machine. In the process they observed the workings of the machines, collected data and predicted how they would operate together.
