Mini Courses - Fire and Ice

Published: 14 March 2012

Students from Strömbacka School in Piteå visited the Department of Infrastructure Planning and Natural Resources today.

They could try a little of everything during the day. Mini courses are contained among other things, an acid test for models of wooden houses built in different woods. Brand development revealed huge differences in speed and development.

In IceLab research center snowballs tested with different hardness. The tests are related to structures in the Ice Hotel.
