Young Engineers Say YES to Summer Science Class

August 19, 2018 - 14:34

NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- In a summer science class, as soon-to-be sixth-graders created towers of straws, cardboard and pins, student Alexandra Fernandes invented one innovative way to keep a ping-pong ball from bouncing out of the container on the top. She folded the flexible sections of straws into a protective roof for the ball. That would be key when her team's tower took its turn on the earthquake machine to see how much shaking it could stand.

That was just one way that the 40 students found to ensure that the small, loosely placed sphere stayed in place.
