Bathroom STEM: Shapes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPutting up STEM questions and activities on the bathroom wall is a great use of available space, while at the same time capitalizing on a captive audience. This month’s theme was shapes. It was a bit less successful than the Animal Homes we did last month. The “How many Triangles Do You See?” was too hard for my target audience. I was trying to engage the older library users, and its possible that I did so, but they did not give me any feedback. The picture with “How many triangles/blue shapes/etc” question should have been larger to be more effective. The one positive outcome of this month’s Bathroom STEM is the discovery that painter’s tape is a great alternative to masking tape when posting things to the wall. It sticks just as well, but doesn’t pull up the paint. (Note that this is not actually the bathroom wall. The original picture was lost, so I recreated it on the floor since I did not want to retape all the pictures.)
