Time Travelers: George Washington Ferris

George Ferris (11)

Our session on George Washington Ferris was one of our largest (literally) undertakings yet. After reading the story of George Ferris’ engineering creation for the Chicago’s World Fair, our engineers set to work designing their own Ferris wheels out of straws, plates, cups and chop sticks!

A talented teen volunteer helped construct an almost 4 foot Ferris wheel and the group collaborated together to design riders. The Ferris wheel is now on display on top of our picture book shelves!
