Support Engineers Week with the Fluor Engineering Challenge!
Grab a few balloons, CDs, straws, and other everyday materials from the "challenge list" and get ready for an exciting hands-on engineering activity this Engineers Week, February 22-28, 2015.
To take the Fluor Engineering Challenge, build a balloon-powered car, put it to the test, and submit your score and a photo of your awesome balloon-powered vehicle. Every student (or team) who takes the challenge will be entered in a random drawing for $1,500 USD for a school or after-school program, courtesy of Fluor. Submissions will be accepted between February 22 and March 15. Click here for complete guidelines and submissions requirements.
Designing a successful balloon-powered vehicle will take a combination of creativity, engineering, and careful attention to the required materials and challenge objective. How high will your vehicle score?
Fluor is a proud sponsor of Science Buddies and a long-time supporter of Engineers Week.
