Leah Beaver, senior in Industrial Engineering, helps multi-age (first and second) and second graders from Clemson Elementary understand the efficiencies gained from labor specialization at the Fourth Annual Engineering and Science Expo at Clemson University. The students made origami fortune tellers in two groups: individually and by assembly line. The assembly line students were able to make more origami fortune tellers. Other activities included a water-powered car from BioSystems Engineering, building structures with spaghetti and gumdrops and measuring stability with a shake-table from Civil Engineering and making bouncy-balls from Chemistry. The 150 students from Clemson Elementary also visited the Planetarium in Physics and Astronomy.
