Junk Yard Wars
Students will be given constraints in order to solve various problems just like a professional engineer would. Do you think you could create a bridge strong enough to hold yourself made only out of popsicle sticks? How about an airbag device that could protect a passenger from a high speed car crash? What about making the most buoyant boat that can't be sunk or making the fastest boat without any motors? You will learn how to solve problems like these through math, science and careful troubleshooting.
