E3633: Engineering Design: From Start to Finish in Splash! Spring 2014 (Apr. 12 - 13, 2014)
This class will lead students through two design challenges. While these projects have a foundation in engineering and physical concepts, these tasks also demonstrate the importance of creativity and teamwork. The first design challenge involves building a high rise from simple materials like marshmallows, spaghetti string, and tape. This tower will have to withstand different types of "naturally" occurring forces. The second design challenge consists of building an aluminum boat that can hold pennies. There will be a competition to see which boat holds the greatest number of pennies. Then, if time permits, students will get the chance to rebuild their boats using their knowledge from their first attempt. Each of these challenges will be performed in teams. Ideally, these groups will consist of no more than 4-5 students.
