MOSH Workshop - Model Car - May Session - D

Sat May 12, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Museum of Science and History, 1025 Museum Circle, Jacksonville, FL 32207 Map
Girl Program, STEM

Daisies, join the experts at MOSH for this new program and complete the Model Car Design Challenge! Using GoldieBlox and hands-on activities, learn about friction by building and testing model cars. When engineers design something new, they need to think about forces like gravity and friction. Friction is a force that slows and stops moving objects. Without friction, any object that was pushed or pulled would keep moving forever. Build a model car out of GoldieBlox and test the friction of your car on different surfaces to prepare for a MOSH Car Chase! 

Check-in will begin at 1 p.m. and the workshop will begin promptly at 1:30 p.m. The museum will be open for exploration between check-in and the start of the workshop, as well as after the workshop is complete.  Register for the morning Board Game session and make a day of it!

Thanks to a grant provided by ASTC/Voya Financial, we’re able to provide these programs at a low cost. If the number of adults exceeds the number of girls for your group, additional adults must pay a fee of $15. 

MOSH Workshop - Model Car is a part of the Voya STEM Career Initiative presented by Voya Financial, a program of the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC).
