In this activity, learners explore the concepts of structural engineering and how to measure the critical load, or the maximum weight a structure can bear.
In this activity, learners explore how civil engineers solved the challenge of moving water via irrigation.
In this activity, learners explore how engineers work in a team to solve problems.
In this activity, learners explore how engineers develop pipeline systems to transport oil, water, gas, and other materials over very long distances.
In this activity, learners explore the unique challenges in transportation engineering, such as devising a method for skiers or hikers to get to the top of a mountain.
Each group of learners uses everyday materials, such as paper, toothpicks, and tape to design and construct a structure intended to support the weight of a cinder block for 30 seconds.
Learners work in groups to design and build a tower out of balsa wood. As a motivator, they can compete to build a tower with the highest strength-to-weight ratio.
In this activity, learners explore how engineering has impacted the development of bridges over time, including innovative designs and the challenge of creating bridges that become landmarks for a cit
