Structural Engineering Workshop
Saturdays in February, March and April
February 22, March 1, 15, 22, 29 and April 5
9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Location: Bloomsburg University - Hartline Science Center
Students will learn about structural engineering through models. They will work on bridge structures and the tension, harmonics, and physics behind the forces applied to the structure. Towers will be built and the dynamics tested for ground prep, compaction testing of soil types, wind shear, and “shake test” for stability in earthquake simulation. The structure, mobility, counter weight, and center of gravity of cranes will also be studied.
Instructor: Mr. Stephen Goodale
Mr. Stephen Goodale is the executive director of the Weatherly Institute for Robotics and Engineering. He has created a safe, non-violent program that allows students of all ages to come and learn about the sciences through teamwork and personal creativity. The Structural Engineering Workshop will be Mr. Goodale’s third workshop with the College of Science and Technology. In the past Mr. Goodale has taught a Robotics Workshop, Nanotechnology Exploration and multiple sessions for the Math and Science Summer Experience held every summer at Bloomsburg University.
