Geometry students collaborated with peers in the Design Early College program on an interdisciplinary lesson to build trusses. Geometry groups served as design engineers and Design students served as structural engineers, making modifications before 3D printing each truss. Instructors then tested to see how much weight each could hold. Watch the action here:

Interdisciplinary Work: Mrs. Linik and Mr. Caldwell's classes collaborated on a project to build a strong truss. Geometry students served as Design Engineers by researching different types of trusses and creating a prototype. Students in Design ECE took on the role of Structural Engineers by analyzing the designs to build the trusses. Testing will take place later this week!
