Welcome to Indigenous Futures in Engineering, Queen's University

Flight Week

This week is Flight Week. We designed structures to cradle and protect an egg when we dropped it from different heights. Campers found a wide range of ways to approach the problem and constructed structures with combinations of parachutes, padding and various types of cradles for the egg.  

Some took the time to customize their structures. They got to see what worked and what didn’t as we took turns dropping the parachutes from different heights and onto different surfaces, then all crowded around to see if the egg was okay.

This week, only Kanehsatake had extra time so we also did a paper airplane making workshop and we tested to see how far our creations could fly!
