Emre Robe

My name is Emre Robe, and I’m a rising senior at the Washington International School in Washington, D.C. At Princeton, I’ve been working with Victor Charpentier on a planned exhibit at the Botanical Gardens which will demonstrate how a material can increase in strength without changing the amount used. Before working on the project, I learned the fundamentals of bending and stress mechanics which were key for the work I did. Using what I had learned, I calculated the force required to bend four different shapes of structural fiberglass – all having the same mass – and used a CAD program to design support structures which would allow to demonstrate the strength of each one.
