Geometry came alive for the kids through a program called Geometer Sketchpad, and we studied tessellations with the help of our esteemed guest Dr. Trintor of UVA!
Marshmallows flew as the students tested their ability to launch the marshmallows with precision and accuracy. Our challenge was to create a lever capable of catapulting various-sized marshmallows into a bucket three yards away. Students learned how to vary the fulcrum of the lever to reach the goal. To finish the day, we had a competition to see who could accumulate the most points in a skee ball game, launching the marshmallows into the buckets for multiple points. It was neck and neck, but in the end, three sticky marshmallowed campers took the lead!
