Designing for the Weather
Design a structure to meet a challenge, then learn about weather hazards and how structures are engineered to stand up to extreme conditions.
Students will explore the benefits of a lightweight, strong structure and build within parameters to meet a challenge. Strong, light structures are necessary in constructing buildings (especially in areas with extreme weather) as well as air and space craft.
