So on Friday, the Rossin Junior Fellows Society (RJF) held the Broughal Engineering day in Packard Lab. The 8th grade classes from Broughal Middle School came over around noon and we split them into teams to do some engineering projects. The two projects were making a tin foil boat, which would be put into water and then filled with pennies, and to create a bridge out of tape, marshmallows and spaghetti. The students had a lot of fun with the projects and they got to hear some background information for why we were having them do those specific projects. We talked to them about suspension bridges, trusses, and about boats. All in all, it was a pretty productive day.
