Come to our Math & Engineering Workshop!
Workshop: Designing a Container to Collect Rainwater
In this workshop, participants will use their knowledge of mathematics (height, radius, surface area, and volume) to design a container that will collect rainwater. Using the Building Math curricula developed by the Museum of Science in Boston, participants will engage in the engineering design challenge to solve a problem given the following scenario:
The average person cannot survive for more than one week without fresh water. Ocean salt water surrounds the island and there is no supply of fresh water on the island. Students will have to rely on rainwater for survival. In this activity, students discover an irregularly shaped piece of plane siding. Students will use this piece of plane siding to create a rainwater collector. The challenge is to create a collector design with a large volume as well as functionality. Students will investigate the relationship among height, radius, surface area, and volume to help them with their design.
