You’re on a roll! A steep slope needs a safe path down from the top. Students will work in teams to empathize with path users of diverse abilities and apply the engineering design process to design, build, test, and improve a path down a mountain to create the safest, slowest route possible.

This program typically takes place in Classroom 1 in the Planetarium Hallway. Combine this program with a field trip to the museum.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
