Field Trip – King K-8 School

On October 7th, 7th and 8th grade students from the King K-8 School came to Northeastern to learn about engineering. Northeastern’s chapter of AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) taught the students about rockets and helped them design, build, and test paper rockets.

In the afternoon, Alpay Demiryurek, from the civil engineering department, led the students through a structures activity in which the students learned about earthquakes, designed buildings to resist them, and got to feel an earthquake using the department’s earthquake simulator.
