POTSDAM -- Clarkson University will host the North Country Science and Engineering Festival from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20 in Cheel Campus Center. It is free and open to the public.
The festival will feature many hands-on activities that challenge visitors’ science and math talents. Paper Airplane Design and The Paper Bridge Challenge will test engineering savvy. Whose paper airplane can fly the farthest? Whose bridge can hold the most pennies? The Giant Q-Tip Fight will demonstrate the body’s center of mass and agility. Who will be the last one standing on the balance ball? A flotilla of foil boats will vie to see which one can hold the most weight. There will be robot challenges and robotic demonstrations.
