Did you and the kiddos have your pinhole cameras ready for the Great American Eclipse? Seeing the corona during a total eclipse may seem like magic, but it's all fun science!

Check out NASA's gallery of images taken around the country here: bit.ly/mom-2017eclipse. Have your own awesome pictures of the eclipse? Share and let us know where the images were taken!

Pint-sized robotic breakthroughs in the making! 👨‍💻👩‍🔬

We have had a week of adventures learning about robots, static and current electricity, magnetism, and launched our own parachutes!

It has been a great week where we saw how scientists, engineers, mathematicians and artists come all together to advance technology and create the most unbelievable things, like robots that can walk on two feet, play football and serve you a drink!

For our grand finale on Friday we launched our own rocket! We had a magnificent lift off and everyone cheered! That is until one of our rockets disappeared over the fence!!! 👩‍🔬

Who knows? One of these kiddos could design the rocket that lets humans explore the galaxy! 👩‍🚀

We finished off last week with fun, exploration and discovery!

We continued our STEAM theme and learned all about simple machines, and things that GO. From hammers to ramps and on to boats and beyond.
The kids have hypothesized like real scientists - discussing why things happen, coming up with ways of testing their theories, and then creating real experiments with exciting results!

Emma and Siri had a blast transporting "bricks" via a pulley system. We learned that mechanisms like pulleys can help lighten the load and make transporting "heavy" items a breeze!

Afterward, Siri and Emma were proud of their construction!

Following our Full STEAM Ahead weight distribution experiment, the kids got to make their own city of skyscrapers! Now that's an urban jungle!

Holy engineering Batman!

Summer learning and fun is in full swing at My Own Montessori! We learned about engineering and building structures. We even had a few volunteers to show how important weight distribution is in a building through an expirement with paper cups and cookie trays!

First, a volunteer stood on two paper cups representing columns. As soon as the volunteer stepped on the cups, they got crushed. Then we laid out several paper cups to serve as columns and then placed a cookie tray on them to serve as a lintel and asked a volunteer to test the structure. It held up much better but some of the paper cups got crushed under the weight. Now we tried again with more paper cups and a cookie sheet and this time the structure could hold the weight of our volunteer. Encouraged by this we tried to build higher: we used two stories of paper cups and lintels and it could hold the weight of our volunteer!

What engineering experiments do you like to try at home?
