3D Modeling

Science math and science are closely related, this experiment makes a nice integration between the two. If you’re teaching about volume as a 3 dimensional construct, it can be difficult for kids to make the distinction between a 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional object. In this experiment we construct 3 dimensional objects from templates, and investigate how changing the size of the 2 dimensional template affects the volume of the resulting solid.
