Professors Clouston, Hoque, Weil introduce Eureka! students from Girls Inc. to energy conservation and bridge construction

Posted: August 27th, 2013

Hoque and Weil with Girls Inc.

Girls from project Eureka! (Girls, Inc.) working with Ben Weil and Simi Hoque to test the duct dog for air leakage. In our workshop, they learned about energy conservation, heat transfer, and how to use a thermal imaging camera to detect heat signatures. They also had a really good time decorating ‘Milo’ the dog and cleaning him off after he was very well air sealed.

Helping girls excel in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), Clouston worked with eighth graders on bridge construction during a workshop sponsored by Girls Inc. Eureka! They built and broke models of truss bridges while learning about forces and how material can be placed in special patterns to make stronger structures.
