Caltech Edition: Structural Engineering Design Contest

Imagine yourself a Caltech undergraduate. You enter your fall term engineering class, and your professor gives you a bag of junk. Your objective for the next ten weeks... build a wireless power controlled device that can heave mass up a curved slope. Larry Mantle takes a look at learning by doing with Caltech Professor Erik Antonsson. They'll discuss contests from the past, the current one, what students take away from the class, and more.
