Advanced Fort Building
Do you like to build forts out of couch cushions? Take it to
the next level! In this camp, we’ll build structures out of all kinds of
materials, from pool noodles to giant tinker toys. Fort building will give us
the opportunity to engage in the engineering design process and learn about how
to balance forces so our structures stay erect.
The camp will be held in the
Sonderegger Science Center on the Edgewood College Campus. The science center
is a K-16 building that serves science students of all ages. 1000 Edgewood
College drive, Madison, WI
