Also, I know the Engineering Olympics ended some time ago, but since this is the first blog post since those took place, I'd like to give a shout out to our winners this year.
1st place: Brian Schafer
2nd place: Sebastian Marki and Andrew Lascelle
3rd place: Tyler Schommer and Shawn Anderson
Congrats to our winners and thanks to all of you who participated.
This year, the first challenge was to build a water clock using paper and tape.
The second challenge was to build as tall of a tower as possible that could still support a specified weight.
The third challenge was to build a boat out of paper, tape, and a few straws and popsicle sticks that would float with as much weight in it as possible.
The final and championship challenge was building a bridge out of marshmallows, straws, and a small amount of string that could support as much weight as possible.
From all of us in the Engineering LLC - welcome back. We're looking forward to another great semester with you!
