HS: Physics Olympics- Soda Straw Arm PDF Print E-mail

Anna V.G. & Samantha E. will be competing next week in the High School State Physics Olympics- Soda Straw Arm Challenge. During Physics class, they conquered the challenge and created a soda straw arm that is ready for competition! The purpose of the competition is with the supplies (20 jumbo plastic, clear straws, 15 straight pins & one #1 paper clip), to construct the longest arm that will support a 50-gram mass. At competition, they will reconstruct this object and pick up the 50-gram mass using their creation. Good luck Anna & Samantha!
