More Tuesday STEAM Fair projects:

Make Your Own Stethoscope

Annapolis Pediatrics

Nurse Practitioner, Kay Pessagno will show us how Kids can use household items to make their own stethoscope, then listen to their own heartbeat and their parents heartbeats. We will talk about the heart and different places where you can feel your heart “pulse” on your body.

What you need:

  • Two funnels (Use what you have on hand or can get inexpensively at a store.)
  • 2 feet of clear plastic tubing that will fit either over or inside the funnel spouts. (Chose the tubing that best fits your funnels, so the size of the tubing will vary)
  • Balloons
  • Electrical Tape
  • Scissors

Homemade Gak*

Chesapeake Family Life

Using simple ingredients – borax, glue, and water – this easy Homemade Gak recipe is fascinating to watch as two liquids come together to form a solid, or is it still a liquid? Or something in between, because Gak will move.

What you need:

  • 4 ounces school glue
  • 1/2 cup water + 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Borax food coloring (optional)
  • Small container for mixing
  • Spoon for stirring Measuring cup

*Note: this makes a nice amount of Gak; you can easily half the recipe and make two different colors.

Ancient Greek Architecture Challenge

Chesapeake Family Life

Ancient Greeks (and many other cultures still) used the post and lintel system because when you put a top (lintel) on several columns (posts), it can bear much more weight than any of the columns could individually…even if you added them up. The challenge is to use a set of paper cups and two cookie sheets to create your own building using the post and lintel system that will hold your weight

What you need:

  • Paper Cups
  • Cookie Sheets

Land Preservation Presentation

Scenic River Land Trust

Learn why land conservation is so important and what kinds of jobs are available to kids who want to work to preserve our environment, study nature and use technology to protect the forests. 

What you need: no materials needed
