Black Holes                 Anna Pedersen            Ruby Solomon

Today, in Dr. Charles Mesier’s Lab, we will be discussing the basics of black holes. We will
explore their sizes, properties, and how we even know they are out there!

Earthquake Retrofit                     Kelsey Harper       Maia Hoffman

We will discuss the best foundation, structures, and other reinforcements in buildings and how
they act during an earthquake. We will also discuss the best shape of buildings.



Project MOSE, Venice                   Jeremy Costello

A system is being built in Venice that will protect it from most floods and save buildings and
frescoes.


Tides                        Kaesha Freyaldenhoven                Lia Guy

We will talk about the types of tides affected by the moon and the sun. We will also compare
and contrast theories on gravity of Newton and Einstein, and how each affects the tides.

Global warming is becoming worse and worse everyday. That’s why we’re here to stop it. Our

explaining the cause, effects and solutions of global warming. We will also demonstrate the
rapid melting of the ice caps.



Bridges

We are going to demonstrate the forces of tension and compression as they apply to the three
most common types of bridges. We will also be explaining why some bridges are used instead
of others in specific geographical locations. Engineering giant Leon Mousseiff will also make a
special guest appearance.
