Date: Saturday, February 20th
Where: University of Alaska Anchorage – Engineering & Industry Building

The UAA College of Engineering and local, professional engineering societies sponsor student competitions for local elementary, middle school and high school students. The premier event that always gets the biggest reaction from students is the Tower of Power – students construct a bridge out of balsa wood at home or in school and then find out what sort of load it can withstand before it fails. Other competitions include Egg Drop, Floatable Moatables, the Lego Logno, Paper Airplane Distance Toss, Shake and Break, Egg Toss and more.   For additional information visit the UAA EWeek page.
