Topic: Understanding structures and mechanism, forces acting on structures/mechanisms
Students will research, design, and build (using the materials and tools provided) a billboard that yields to excessively high winds found in Tornado Alley, without collapsing. The billboard should require very little effort and/or materials to return it to its original state. Students will record their results, make modifications and re-test (if time permits), and complete a report on the steps they took to solve the design challenge.
