Students learn how to make a bike at WVU Engineering Challenge Camp

Monongalia and Preston

Tuesday, high school students learned how to build a bike at WVU Statler College’s Engineering Challenge Camp. 

This was part of the ‘Engineering in Action’ portion of the camp.

This camp teaches kids stem activities that connect recreational activities with sciences. 

In Tuesday’s activity, they not only learned how to build the bike, but also the science behind it. 

“Since they’re learning how to be engineers, they can think about ways to make bikes better, how to improve things, different materials to use,” said Eleanor Kearney, Camp Counselor.    

After building the bikes, the students will go on an 18 mile bike ride on the rail trail.
