During this 8-week after-school program, students will investigate the structural elements that help buildings stand up. Working at different scales, from beams and columns to bridges and skyscrapers, we will test different structures to discover the underlying forces at work, and see how design choices affect a structure’s strength. Students will have an opportunity to apply this new knowledge by creating a scale model of their own design!
