We participated in a week long Art/Music camp during Spring Break. It is a fantastic (free) program, and Benton LOVED it.
Nathaniel participated as his short attention span would allow and the two of us got to spend a little quality time at the grocery store while Benton slaved away at rehearsals. The theme for the art section was architecture so they learned fun new concepts like tension and compression (in the bridge building class) and exciting vocabulary like flying buttresses (in the castle section).
On the final day, the students built a contraption designed to keep an egg safe when dropped off the roof of a building using only items found around your house. After Benton and his dad spent a few days brainstorming, Benton finally came up with the design. A box with a layer of foam in the bottom and foam on the top.
In test drop #1 from the second story window onto our driveway, the box landed on its side and the egg didn't make it. A few modifications were made: more foam on the sides and a wing to slow the descent and all that was left was to decorate and try again.
