Guest speaker:civil engineering technology

November 3, 2017

We had a guest speaker today who told us all about civil engineering technology at St. Lawrence college.  She was a KC grad, and is excited to share about her educational journey.

She brought us a challenge: to make a popsicle stick bridge.

Here were many different approaches to the activity.

The bridge needed to span 1 foot and be free standing.

It was made of popsicle sticks and tape only.

This bridge did very well, but was not long enough to actually span the gap.

It was a good challenge to accomplish a goal as a group with limited time and limited materials.
