STEAM Sunday

Can’t get enough STEAM? Join the Witte for STEAM Sunday! Add to your Witte experience with hands-on explorations of exciting Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.

Dino Levers: March 7, 2021

What can levers teach us about dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures? Explore the mechanics of levers and how they make the jaw work. Inspired by the exhibition The Machine Inside: Biomechanics, this workshop challenges you to try your hand at biomimicry (engineering something that resembles living creatures). See if you can figure out which dinos had a fast bite and which dinos had a strong bite as you build your own working jaw model.

Recommended for all ages over 5. Program runs approximately 45-60 minutes.
