Math and science get rockets into space. Math and science are why we have smartphones and video games. This course will introduce you to some everyday uses of math and science.
Bridging the Gap in S.T.E.M.
This is a bridge.For practical purposes, bridges provide safe passage from one place to another. We utilize them on a regular basis without actually thinking about the finer details of their construction.The melding of architectural andartistic detailsto create this bridge are the result of acollaboration between key components of STEM. For example, thestability of the structure is engineered into the bridgeby way of thegeometric patterncreated by the steel beams below its surface, and the arches that connect them. We owe the conception of this pattern to mathematics. Physics and chemistryaccount for the properselection of materials. Consider the previously mentioned steel beams that rest upon the concrete footings. The beams and the footings are responsible forequal weight distributionand keeping the bridge out of the body of water. The ideal materials will withstand the environmental extremes that may occur, thus preventing damage fromexpansion and contraction, as well asensuring that the bridge doesn't collapse. ~Ayinde Michael
