Stop by Make:NYC’s 17th meeting for some balsa bridge building and maker show and tell. Ryan writes:

I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m sick of this cold weather hampering my structure-building! Support us and give us your truss! Show up for Meeting 17!

Challenge: Balsa Bridge Construction

It’s the classic physics-challenge you all know and love. Teams will construct balsa spans built to support the greatest possible weight. Teams will be supplied with balsa, glue and cutting utensils. We recommend everyone do their homework for this meeting. Spend some time researching good design techniques.

Show and Tell

Meet your fellow NYC Makers and show off your creations! Bring your gadgets, gizmos, sketches, ideas, anything you’d like to put in the spotlight. We encourage NYC Makers to collaborate on and discuss DIY projects. If you’re planning to bring a project, drop us a note at meetings@makenyc.org.

Don’t forget to RSVP!

Make:NYC Meeting 17
Thursday, February 4th, 6:30pm
