Structures and Shapes

Structures and Shapes

Which shape is the strongest? Students put their problem-solving skills to the test to find out in this hands-on program.

Program Description:

Students experiment to discover the characteristics of different structures and how they are designed to meet specific needs. They try building a tower or bridging a river to learn which geometric shapes are the strongest. This workshop encourages students to use their problem-solving skills while building structures.
