24th Annual E3 Engineering & Technology Fair!

Vista Teach is excited to be supporting some of our regular Summer Campers, the “Techmen” Team at the 24th Annual E3 Engineering & Technology Fair, on Wednesday, April 9th at R.I.T.

Engineering – Exploration – Experimentation

This is a joint effort between engineering societies and area industries. The Fair’s mission is to increase exposure of engineering and technology related fields to middle school students (grades 6 – 8).

There are three competition options available to students:

Science / Engineering Project (Option 1): Prepare a project or experiment for display that is based on engineering or technology principles.

Simple Machine (Option 2): “A Tractor Pull Vehicle” – Design and construct a machine, using only parts from a LEGO kit (model number specified by the E3 Committee) capable of pulling a basket of weights, with the aid of a pulley, to a distance of 50cm within a time period of 30 seconds.

Robotics (Option 3): ‘Robo Hockey” Design and build a robot using parts from a LEGO kit (model number specified by the E3 Committee) that can push bottle caps arranged in a playing field to a designated goal area in the shortest time possible.
