Our friends with Make:NYC are having their next open meeting on Thursday, February 4th.  It looks quite awesome — you get together and build something in a couple of hours to compete for fame and glory!  Here’s the details:

Make:NYC Meeting 17 – Thursday February 4th, 6:30PM

I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m sick of this cold weather hampering my structure-building! Support us and give us your truss! Show up for Meeting 17!

Challenge: Balsa Bridge Construction

It’s the classic physics-challenge you all know and love. Teams will construct balsa spans built to support the greatest possible weight. Teams will be supplied with balsa, glue and cutting utensils. We recommend everyone do their homework for this meeting. Spend some time researching good design techniques.
