The Try it Truck is a brand new mobile engineering lab out of the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Sausalito. They visited Burnett's first through third graders graders on October 2.
Students were able to explore, build, and invent with classmates using a variety of tools and materials. One teacher told me, "My only complaint is that I didn't get to go inside the truck to build, too!" The students were so excited (I heard more than a few students gasp and exclaim, "Oh my gosh!" as they walked onto the blacktop!) and had a great time engineering. Our STEM teacher was impressed with the program, too! So much so that we're going to try to get them to come back for our fourth through sixth grade students later in the year!
