About the event

Dive into the world of quirky geometry and creative problem-solving with our exciting workshop, "Rolling Squares: The Square Wheel Challenge!" Aimed at curious minds from grades 4 upwards, this 90-minute adventure challenges you to defy the impossible: making a square wheel roll smoothly. Through a blend of imagination, ingenuity, and a dash of science, participants will embark on a journey that turns the ordinary on its head.

As you craft your own square wheels out of cardboard, you'll explore the fascinating principles of geometry and physics that lurk behind everyday objects. This isn't just about building; it's about thinking outside the box—literally. You'll learn how shapes can work together in surprising ways to create smooth motion where none seems possible. 

By the end of the workshop, not only will you have mastered the art of the square wheel, but you'll also take home a powerful lesson: with a bit of creativity and science, even the most puzzling challenges can be overcome. Get ready to roll into the fun and unlock the mysteries of moving squares!

Materials required for the workshop - 

  • Cardboard (can be gotten from any boxes or packaging)
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors 
  • A compass (from a geometry box, optional)
