Ashley and Greg performed summer research at Boeing Seattle
Lab members Zac Stein, Khanh Vo, Matt Northam, and Sanjida Jahan hosted “The Balancing Act of Tensegrity” for Camp Connect II. This activity introduces the students to the concept of tensegrity – the principle of a structure that contains stiff members in compression held only by elastic members like cables, string, and rubber bands.
Camp Connect is a week-long summer camp at UCF that introduces students in 8th grade and high school to a variety of engineering disciplines and encourages careers in STEM. Students participate in various activities and presentations with the help of both faculty and students.
