Cornell Engineers knows a bit about cyclones and their devastating effect on communities. So when we were asked by Year 3 and 4 class at Derrimut Primary School, an Inquiry-based government school in the Western Suburbs of Victoria that is learning about physics and natural disasters, we were quite keen to help.
There are currently 765 students enrolled and 49 nationalities across the year levels at Derrimut Primary.
The 3/4 Gallery 1 Community, consisting of 70 students, have been learning about physics as part of their Inquiry unit. The students have been exploring both simple and complex machines in the past and are now applying their knowledge on a global scale to discover how engineers use these tools to respond to issues around the world (such as natural disasters). How impressive!! Continue reading Cornell Engineers answer Year Three and Four’s Questions→
I found this series of SpaceGass training videos on YouTube and thought they were worth sharing. They’re getting a bit old now (2010) but that’s the version we use at Cornell Engineers – and I suspect this version is still in use in quite a few small structural engineering consultancies.
