Thinkabit Lab Field Trip
THINKABIT LAB FIELD TRIP
A lucky group of Gunston students were able to participate in a fun field trip to Virginia Tech's Northern Virginia Thinkabit Lab at Falls Church. The whole day experience was chocked full of innovation vs invention experiences to lead students to consider a career in STEM. "Smart technology is the future" and "help to society" were guides for considering what student teams might design and build. There were aspects of physical computing and creative robots in the mix. Student inventions included wind turbines, circuit brain break game, a safe, trash collection, and fidget toys. Students did not want to leave, there was 100% engagement.
Mr Fahy and Mrs Hanna accompanied students on the trip and noted that it was an incredible experience.
