Orlando Science Center says
Calling all engineers! We need your help to build a protective structure to keep our rhinos safe!

Some rhinos have been relocated to a conservation facility in Florida and we need structural engineers to design shelters for the rhinos that will withstand the strongest natural forces (think about hurricanes and storms).

Using paper rods and masking tape build a model of the strongest structure you can imagine, we’ll test the strength by dropping books of various weights. The goal is to protect a model rhino (origami) from the elements! Keep developing and modifying your design to find what best protects your origami rhino!


The STEM Challenge will take place at the Science Live! stage in Science Park on Level 2 from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday.


Experience the STEM Challenge 'Rhino Rescue Engineers' with admission to Orlando Science Center which is $19.95 for adults, $17.95 for seniors and students, and $13.95 for youth (ages 3 – 11).
