Description:

3 pm – 4pm The ultimate structural engineering challenge, 5 sheets of paper, how tall can you build it? How much weight can it hold? The class will begin with a brief lecture from an Engineer on static structures and some basics of structural engineering. After the lecture the participants will begin a basic engineering competition! The participants will be given 5 sheets of paper and a roll of tape. The object of the class is to build the tallest and strongest structure possible. The towers will be tested until they collapse, at which point the number of books will be tallied and multiplied by the height of the tower for the final score. The participant with the highest score wins! Parents are encouraged to attend, however space is limited to 15 participants so please preregister. Ages 8 and up. Presented by Fraser Valley Makerspace.
