The game Hexapawn demonstrates machine learning, how artificial intelligence “learns” to make the right choice and win a game 100% of the time.
Renewable energy sources are in focus as participants build a wind-powered car using straws, Lifesavers candies, paper, and paperclips, and get their car to the finish line using as few puffs of air as possible.
Participants consider Newton’s Third Law of Motion along with forces such as gravity and thrust as they design and build an air-powered rocket that can hit a target at least 5 feet away.
Students create a mechanical hand that mimics the bending and straightening of their own fingers and thumb.
Experimenting with shapes such as triangles and arches, teams consider which can best support a load without collapsing. They then use index cards and their shape of choice to build a bridge that will support a die-cast toy car.
