Hundreds of kitschy-costumed teams to compete in science and engineering contest Saturday at The Tech Museum
The Tech Challenge, presented by Cisco as part of a three-year sponsorship comprising financial resources, employee volunteers and a technology donation, introduces and reinforces the scientific and engineering process with a hands-on team project.
WHAT: The Tech Challenge: Shake, Rattle and Rescue. Using ingenuity and engineering know-how, students must creatively attempt to pluck survivors from an earthquake-ravaged bridge. All this against blaring sirens followed by an urgent announcement of a powerful quake. Throughout the room, bright yellow caution lights will relentlessly flicker and plumes of smoke will swell into the air as the rolling, rumbling sounds of an earthquake rise from beneath the bleachers and explode overhead
WHEN: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Saturday, April 21, 2012
