·1 toy minifigure (LEGO® works)

·String or thread (floss works too)

·Paper and pencil 

We will build upon week one’s discussion about the variables necessary to conduct an experiment, and young scientists will have the opportunity to change one variable at a time to redesign their parachute for a safer landing. 

Miss Abbey will end the time together by reading the group a story and giving young scientists the opportunity to decorate their parachutes. 

Register your young scientist on our calendar to receive a Zoom link before the meeting. If you are unable to get the necessary materials yourself, but would still like to participate, please email agallagher@millbrooklibrary.org.
