Join us at the Southern Alberta Professional Development Consortium offices for a 75 minute workshop covering grade 3 Building with a Variety of Materials and Testing Materials & Designs. Ed Kusmirski, P.Eng., of the Alberta Science Network will review the basic concepts of push, pull and twist as they relate to the design and construction of structures.
You will also be divided into teams and guided by a worksheet will proceed through a series of experiments geared to increasing your familiarity with structures that support, span, reach, etc., and how these structures react to various loads and potentially fail.
Alberta Science Network workshops give you classroom ready resources and ideas and enable you to teach science units with more confidence and clarity.
Ed Kusmirski, P.Eng., is the Executive Director of the Alberta Science Network and has been providing workshops through the Alberta Science Network for Teachers in Alberta for a number of years. These workshops are directly linked to the Alberta Curriculum.
