FAB LAB at North Broadway
The EEF recently visited the FAB LAB at North Broadway. Teacher, Marcie Kurka, runs her FAB LAB every Friday. Using Rube Goldberg’s ideas, there is a cart with all sorts of items…..string, rubber bands, popsicle sticks, etc. Students are given tasks and work in small groups to accomplish the task. The day we visited, students had a stack of task cards they could select from. We saw bridges, airplanes, rockets, and I think one group laid out city streets. Other weeks, the class tests items….one rainy day they checked to see if a tarp was really water resistant and why. Students’ comments: We LOVE Fridays!!
