What's Included

Bridges, Roller-coasters and Engineering oh my!! Join iTEC's Engineering Team for a wild heart racing adventure to build roller-coasters and bridges! Learn the physics behind steep inclines and death-defying loops while understanding the mechanics of how roller coasters work as we dive into topics like Newton’s laws and potential, kinetic, and dissipated energy! Learn what goes into designing stable bridges out of different materials and in different structure types like arch, beam, or suspension bridges! Hang on to your seats; it’s sure to be a wild ride! Sample activities include: Build the Bridge Challenge: Will your build stand the test, will it be the strongest Roller Coaster Contest: The ups and downs of physics and the engineering behind the fun.
