Examine and work with different materials to make windows from materials that are not transparent, bridges from material that isn’t stiff and other seemingly impossible building challenges! Learn through experimentation about tensile and compressive strength, as well as other characteristics of materials.

Outreach programs are designed for students in grades 3-12. The cost of one 60 minute program is $160, but multiple programs are offered at a discounted rate – $140 for each additional program.
