Wind-Powered Whale Rescue

Inspired by Humpback Whales, a featured educational film in The Tech’s IMAX Theater, guests will design solutions to help move whales to safer waters.  In this engineering design challenge, participants will engineer and test ways to transport a miniature, 3D-printed whale using a zip line and wind power. Additional design challenges, for deeper engagement, will include angled zip lines and the incorporation of an escape hatch to drop the whale into a safety zone.
