As a part of the engineering week, the AIAA chapter will be hosting a competition for the strongest and lightest cantilever beam structure using a standard box of components:
- Popsicle sticks
- Aluminum foil
- Chloroplast stock sheets (which is a fancy name for a plastic cardboard structural material)
- Hobby glue (or tape)
- Wooden dowel rods
- Your imagination and engineering genius 🙂
The design which has the highest supported weight to structural weight will win!
