Building and Testing Bicycle Wheels
Want your students to remember math or science class the next time they ride a bike? Give them an inside look at what it takes to build and test durable, high-tech bike wheels. In the assembly room, spokes are plucked like guitar strings to ensure equal tension and a balanced load.In a test room, a custom machine is subjecting a wheel to 4.4 million bumps! Behind the scenes, high performance bikes are all about science,technology, engineering and math (STEM). A good video for career day too.<

FIRST Lego League Competition
FIRST Lego League Competitions are held all over the United States and Canada to give kids a fun way to engage with math, science and technology. Guided by adult mentors, students use their own imagination to design and build robots made of Legos to perform tasks and navigate obstacles as part of the competition. This regional tournament is held each year at the University of Rochester. For more information, visit http://www.firstrochester.org/
