Workshop with U of A Engineering Dept. (completed grades K-4th)*

The University of Arkansas's Engineering outreach team will be leading a fun filled workshop that will include two different activities.

During the first activity students will design a freestanding and moveable tower. The groups will be given only a limited amount of supplies just as if they were designing a tower with real-world resource limitations. The tower will be measured at the end of the allowed time.

In the second activity students will be tasked with creating a rollercoaster for Marble World©. Engineers test rollercoasters to make sure they are strong, sturdy and safe to ride. The rollercoaster must include certain elements to make sure that the rollercoaster is fun and safe for the marble people who will ride it.

This workshop is free and open to those who have completed grades K-4th. All supplies will be provided.
