Creative Activities at Pierce Building Fall Social
Students, staff, spouses and children enjoyed socializing at the Pierce Building Fall Social on the evening of November 14. In the spirit of innovation, students and children designed and built balloon-powered Lego cars, and tested them for distance in the Building 1 basement corridor. A car made by graduate students placed first, having moved steadily and smoothly farther than all the others. Working steadily on an original design, the 10-year-old and 8-year-old sons of Jeremy Gregory, executive director of the MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub, placed second, edging out a double-balloon powered vehicle also by graduate students.
