Exploring Structures and Forces
- Science and Technology - Structures and Forces
- program emphasizes respect, responsibility, teamwork, co-operation and perseverance
All structures are affected by forces. In this innovative program, students become scientists investigating structures and forces in TUSC’s IT Lab. Students are "engineers" exploring tension and compression in nature, and by building and testing! With each activity designed to deepen the students’ understanding of tension and compression, their final task is to test their skills in an electronic bridge design challenge.
