Dyson Creates 44 Free Engineering & Science Challenges for Kids Quarantined During COVID-19

A heads up: Dyson has “cre­at­ed 44 engi­neer­ing and sci­ence activ­i­ties for chil­dren to try out while at home dur­ing the coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic, from mak­ing a bal­loon-pow­ered car to build­ing a bridge from spaghet­ti,” writes the Dezeen web­site. They go on to add: “Com­prised of 22 sci­ence tasks and 22 engi­neer­ing activ­i­ties, the Chal­lenge Cards can be com­plet­ed by chil­dren using com­mon house­hold items such as eggs, string and bal­loons.” You can also find a relat­ed playlist of videos on YouTube, one of which appears above.

This engineering/science activ­i­ties have been added to our refreshed col­lec­tion, 200 Free Kids Edu­ca­tion­al Resources: Video Lessons, Apps, Books, Web­sites & More. If you know of any great K‑12 resources, espe­cial­ly ones that are always free, please add them in the com­ments below, and we will try to add them to the list.

    Hi — We’re a NZ organ­i­sa­tion that nor­mal­ly dis­trib­uted free learn­ing kits to class­rooms. At the moment we’re in lock­down in NZ so we set up a Face­book Group — School Kit at home. We’re post­ing 4 times dai­ly — free activ­i­ties you can do with basic mate­ri­als with your kids at home. We’re famous for nev­er giv­ing our teach­ers work­sheets, word finds or colour­ing in pages so we’re not doing that here either. Every­thing is on a Watch, Talk, Do mod­el and is designed to be done in your “bub­ble”. We’ve had loads of Aussie fam­i­lies join. Not sure if it is help­ful School Kit at Home on Face­book or post­ing dai­ly sum­maries https://www.schoolkit.co.nz/ideas-to-steal

    My son Rowan made a mar­ble run from the video- they said they’d like to see exam­ples of what kids are doing! Where do we send that?
