Beneath the Surface: Albus Cavus - Bicycle Design

Date: 
Friday, August 2, 2013 - 4 p.m.

Bicycles are the most effective and fastest mean of transportation in our city. Let's examine their design and technology that makes them run. Learn about metal parts and composite frames, gears, chains and study how the world's craziest bikes were built: art bikes, cargo bikes, tandem bikes.

In the second part of the workshop, we will design our own unique bicycles.  

Ages 13-19.
