This week’s challenge – Critical Load
This TryEngineering lesson, Critical Load, focuses on the issues civil engineers face with critical load and how to design a structure to hold excess weight. This lesson uses materials you can find at home. Join us for this complimentary webinar, hosted by the IEEE TryEngineering team, and learn how you can teach this fun TryEngineering lesson plan.
Age Levels: 8 – 14
- Learn about civil engineering and the importance of critical load
- Learn about alternative materials and tips for successful builds
- Learn about the engineering design process and productive failure
