Students work with a FL Q Chapter volunteer on building a structure made of marshmallows and popsicle sticks.

The Florida Theta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, at Florida International University (FIU), hosted approximately 90 students for a MindSET structures hands-on module as part of the FIU Engineering Expo 2016. The students responded positively to the activity and presented their structures along with an explanation of its engineering purpose. Several students indicated a desire to build structures as future engineers. Thanks to FL Theta MindSET chair Daniela S. Gil, FL Q 2017, for submitting the images and summary.

On Sunday, February 28, the California Epsilon Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, at UCLA, hosted its 6th Annual Rube Goldberg Competition. The event pits teams of 5-8 against each other in building a Rube Goldberg machine, which performs a simple task in the most complicated way possible using common everyday items. More images from the event are available here.
