Turbines at Studio

A couple weeks ago the activity for the day was to make a turbine wheel out of cups that could be powered by water. At first the kids were skeptical as to what the activity was and whether or not it would work. But, after we explained it a bit they got really into it which was awesome to see. Pretty soon the studio was filled with kids running around with cups, tape and plates in hand. They were excited to show the tutors the progress they were making and then we were able to take the wheels outside to test them. Almost all of the wheels were able to me be moved by the water which the kids loved. It was a great day at the studio because it was clear that the kids had had a really good time and they had learned something completely random and new from our activity.
