Patrons use common materials to design and construct their own zipline to transport small item from here to there. Turn this into a "Make & Take" activity by providing printed family guides and materials for constructing ziplines in a bag for your patrons.
A take-home that can be sent with patrons that wish to do STEM activities at home. These at-home activities cover similar topic areas as the associated activity and could be handed out at the conclusion of a program or left on a circulation desk for patrons to take home.
|Hints for uses in your library||"Take & Make" tip: invite your patrons to post pictures of their final products to your social media to share how they turned out!|
