Nearly 200 middle school Crusaders attended our STEM Exploratory Days during spring break this year. They did a lot of exploring! Crusaders had a great workshop in stop-motion animation, which was expertly taught by instructors from the Rhode Island Museum of Science & Art (RIMOSA). In the photos above and at left, teams of Crusade video makers preview their animations before doing second takes.

The egg toss experiment involved building a device to protect an egg from breaking when dropped out of a second story window. A surprising number of eggs made the trip intact! They tested the buoyancy of multiple objects and wrote creatively in response to prompts. See more photos below.

Special thanks to Juliette Casselman, education director for RIMOSA, and program instructors Liz Fontaine and Julian Lynch. We also thank Segue Institute for Learning for hosting our students. And look out down there – here comes another egg!
