Engineering Is Just One Part Of A New Academy

A new trend in science is the B. E. A. R. Academy (Biomedical, Engineering, Animation, Robotics) and what better way to understand the Engineering aspect than to build a Bridge. This Bridge building lesson covers the concepts and physics of forces in a way that is both challenging and fun.  Since the students work in groups the project will provide an insight into the give and take dynamics of working in a team.   They will also learn how to research and problem solve as they build a structure that is functional and see exactly how well they have done by weight testing their final product.   The students will follow the link below.
