CVCC/RC Host Engineering Camp

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA - Some area kids got to put their engineering skills to good use in summer camp on Tuesday.

It's all part of CVCC's Technology/Engineering camp, in conjunction with Randolph College.  R.C. professors teach the camp.

Fourteen kids got to build air rockets in the classroom. Then they went outside on R.C.'s campus to test them out. The goal was keep the eggs inside the rockets from breaking.

"We're actually having them do what is called the egg drop. They're protecting an egg that we drop from a height and that's relevant because of things like air bags and helmets and we're actually getting them to discover on their own how they can do this effectively," Randolph College professor Peter Sheldon said.
