Class Projects and Contests

NEWTON Ask A Scientist program is often asked to provide strategies or specific information for class projects such as toothpick bridge building, egg drops, etc. We are not in a position to provide this type of information.

Our program is designed to answer specific factual questions that are not commonly found in general reference books or text books.

We offer some helpful sites (Toothpick Bridge Sites) at our Teacher's Page!!! See below...
