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!!
