Engineering and Roller Coasters
Event run by Drexel University Society of Women Engineers.
In this workshop, students will learn to think and design like an engineer by utilizing the engineering process to design a roller coaster using pipe insulation, marbles, and objects within the room.
Computer simulation programs will aid in finding different ways roller coasters can be designed, taking into account variables like height, velocity, gravity, and the roller coaster path. Students will design, evaluate, and improve throughout the workshop, experiencing the process engineers go through on a daily basis!
All materials and lunch will be provided.
Please send an email to Khrushi if you have any questions. Thanks!
