Design challenges are a week long for all ages to experiment and come up with their own solutions to a real world problem. This means hands off mom and dad! A parent’s role is to guide and ask thought-provoking questions without providing a direct solution.
Make a straw tower taller than yourself! How high can you go? Post your photo!
Can you build a tower (about waist height) that holds three cans of food? Use as little material as possible. How many cans of food can it hold before it falls?
Build a straw bridge between your couch and coffee table! Test and try again!
Your hot wheels need to cross your bridge. Reinvent your bridge so your cars can pass! How many cars does your bridge hold before it falls?
Make the longest straw in the world! Place a cup of water in the kitchen, sit down in the living room and have a drink! Make sure to take a photo!
