Have you ever played with your spaghetti at the dinner table, or wondered how bridges work? If you answered yes to either of these questions, we invite you to join us as we build weight-bearing bridges out of unique materials, including spaghetti! We will learn how to make strong structures, test our bridges with heavy forces, and explore engineering through the world of building. Save your summer spaghetti appetite for a week of engineering and building spaghetti based bridges and more!
