Event season, that is. We're gearing up for some big events in 2011, and I'm thinking you may be, too. Well, big events need big activities. Enter Pop Fly: SUPER SIZED!


Our Engineering Advisor, Zoz, used wood planks and surgical tubing to make this giant Pop Fly.


By far our most popular activity at events, the table-top version of Pop Fly has kids use paint stirrers, a wooden spool, tape, and their feet (!) to send a Ping-Pong ball flying into the air. I mean really, is there a more exciting way to learn about simple machines and levers?

If you have an event on the calendar, big or small, consider giving Pop Fly a try. It's sure to be a hit at any size! And if you want to see the giant Pop Fly in person, join us at these events:

Jan. 15: Design Squad Nation Family Day, New York Hall of Science, NY
Feb. 19: Discover Engineering Family Day, National Building Museum, DC
Feb. 26: Design Squad Nation Ingenuity Day, Lawrence Hall of Science, Berkeley, CA

Hope to see you there!
