What are some extra-curricular engineering/architecture courses or programs you can take?
I'm still not fully sure what I want to do as a job or what I want to go to college for but engineering/architecture somewhat interests me so I want to try something related to that out. #engineering #architecture
Have you talked to your teachers about if your school participates in Destination Imagination (https://www.destinationimagination.org)? When I was in high school, this was a program that got me really excited about engineering and architecture, as it allowed me to apply the science, math, and arts concepts that I had learned during high school.
When I participated in 2001, our goal was to build a three-tier structure—one part wood, one part paper, and the last part paper and wood—that would be the lightest it could be, while holding up the most amount of weight. I don't remember the exact specifics, but my team ended up building a structure that withstood 500+ lbs while weighing a little over 100 grams!
I just remembered this project because you stated your goal was to learn more about architecture and engineering. Looking at the challenges they have this year, it seems like they have some challenges that I think you'll be really interested in.
I hope this was helpful, and I wish you the best!
Hope this info helps and all the best to you! You're gonna have a bright future!
