Honor Society Hosts Water Bottle Challenge for Local Gifted Students

Rutgers University’s Engineering Honor Society Tau Beta Pi demonstrated the concepts of energy, momentum, and optimization to students in Woodbridge’s Program for the Exceptionally Gifted (PEG) by means of a popular trend—the water bottle flip challenge.

As part of the honor society’s MindSET program, the event gave the third- to fifth-grade students a hands-on engineering lesson as they tested which water level, bottle size, and fluid type optimized the bottle’s chances of landing upright once thrown into the air.
