Building Science Creations

Create three scientific inventions!

Get ready to build! Kids will create three scientific inventions: a robotic hand, a seismograph (used to measure earthquakes) and an anemometer (used to measure wind flow). Kids will use their robotic hand to pick up objects around the house without even touching them! They’ll create pretend earthquakes and use their seismograph to measure the size of the earthquake. And they can take their anemometer outside and watch it twirl with the wind!

Augusta Udegbunam Learn more about me

I love working with young kids to help their minds explore the numerous possibilities of math and science. Together, we can create fun and exciting experiments, as we develop an understanding of the world around us. I have two degrees - Bachelor of Arts (General Mathematics) and Bachelor of Education (Secondary Mathematics Education). I’ve created a math virtual escape room, done coding for kids, created Co2 Dragster Racing Cars and I love all things financial literacy. When I am not hard at work trying to create the next cool science experiment, you can find me watching college basketball, going for walks around my community, or learning to cook a new meal at home.
