Creative mini-projects at Future Cities

Future_CitiesThis year Fort Worth SWE challenged the Future Cities competition attendees with some mini engineering projects while they waited to give their presentations.  Three challenges were offered:

  • Build boats out of aluminum foil that can hold 25 washers without sinking
  • Build a structure out of popsicle sticks and hot glue that can hold a box of small washers
  • Build a paper airplane that can fly at least 25 feet

Many students stepped up to the challenge and had fun learning the engineering process of: design, build, test and redesign!  The students who were able to meet the design requirements won free passes to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.
