For this Engineering-based activity, students will learn the basics of civil engineering through the design of simple structures. Students will understand the natural forces that should be considered while designing a structure or building. They will be able to experiment with different geometries to ensure their structure is robust through connecting spaghettis with marshmallows.
This activity will help students understand how engineers need to consider multiple geometries to ensure structures and building can sustain strong winds, earthquakes, and hurricanes.
