BUILDING FUTURES | Ladies & Structural Formations…

Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to our very first Building Futures – All-Female ACE Team (Sponsored by CREW)!

In this ACE session, the ladies were working in groups to make the tallest tower out of only spaghetti and gumdrops.  An exercise in teamwork, communication, resource allocation, and planning, students implemented basic ideas of structural design to tackle this collaborative engineering challenge.  The winning design stood over 18” tall and held the weight of one jumbo marshmallow!

Special thanks to our female mentors from KSS Architects, Keast & Hood & Drexel University for guiding them through this structural challenge!
