Let's Build a Pringles Ring!
Presented by: Charles Yost
It takes only a single can of Pringles to construct a gravity-defying ring. This session will combine the building of these rings with education about the science behind it. A can of Pringles and some fundamentals of construction will be provided to form a ring, either as part of a team or by working alone. We will explore the history of this tasty treat and the physics and engineering behind its formation into a free-standing structure. Your mother always told you not to play with your food, but today is the exception to that rule.Level: Introductory and overview
