FUTURES was designed to motivate interest in mathematics by showing students that math is the language of the future–and a passport to creative and rewarding jobs in fields ranging from fashion and skateboard design to architecture and space exploration.
Architecture & Structural Engineering – Shapes. Once you start looking for them, they’re everywhere. It is the structural engineers, like those at the Cantor/Seinuk Group, who make an architect’s design come to life-and perhaps make it earthquake-proof as well, which is the challenge faced by students at Cooper Union School of Architecture. Dizzying visuals take viewers on a high-speed roller coaster ride at Six Flags, where they also meet the designers and engineers who plan and build these amazing structures. Classroom guest: Architect Frank Gehry.
