Engineering & Ingenuity Nights

Engineering & Ingenuity Nights

Lower School (Toddler-4th Grade)
Tuesday, November 16
5:00-7:30 p.m.
Marin Horizon Main Campus

Toddler through fourth grade students and their families are invited to experience the wonders of science. Your Community Association is bringing the Bay Area Discovery Museum’s Try-It Truck along with multiple experiential workstations for hands-on STEAM learning. 

A highlight of the evening will be Upper School students demonstrating their Rollercoaster and Rube Goldberg projects.

Abel’s El Paiso tacos, burritos, and sides will be available for purchase from 5:00 p.m. (Note: Abel accepts cash and Venmo only.)

This is a shuttle event. Shuttles will run from the Mt. Tamalpais Methodist Church (410 Sycamore Avenue) from 4:45-7:45 p.m. There is no parking in the neighborhood around the school. Unless you are walking or biking, you must use the shuttle service.

We need several volunteers to help make this event a success! Please sign up here

Upper School (5th-8th Grade)
Wednesday, November 17
5:00-7:30 p.m.
Marin Horizon Main Campus
 
Our Upper School science curriculum uses the 5th and 6th grade roller coaster project and 7th and 8th grade Rube Goldberg machines for students to bring theory to life as they build their own coasters and contraptions in teams. 

Our 5th and 6th grade engineers are building lightning-fast roller coasters maximizing potential energy and reducing friction, while 7th and 8th graders are constructing their complex, efficient, and always entertaining Rube Goldberg machines (think levers, inclined planes, wedges, screws, pulleys, wheels, axles, and gears).
These projects offer the students an opportunity to collaborate with their peers, think creatively and imaginatively, and work through obstacles. Don't miss out on seeing science in action as the students present and demonstrate their roller coaster creations and Rube Goldberg machines to Upper School families.

Abel’s El Paiso tacos, burritos, and sides will be available for purchase from 5:00 p.m. (Note: Abel accepts cash and Venmo only.)

This is a shuttle event. Shuttles will run from the Mt. Tamalpais Methodist Church (410 Sycamore Avenue) from 4:45-8:00 p.m. There is no parking in the neighborhood around the school. Unless you are walking or biking, you must use the shuttle service.
