Comes complete with:
* 2 PowerPoints with a TOTAL of 27 slides
* 2 Student Overviews

I use these challenges with my Technology unit, as students are building devices to solve a problem.

This project consists of 2 collaborative technology challenges; The Ball Launcher and The Raft Rescue. The Ball Launcher is a 1-2 day project. The Raft Rescue is a bit more challenging and takes around 3-4 days.

Supplies: Just about anything you muster up. That's the great part you can use just about anything, the students will have to be resourceful. You will need to either get a small inflatable raft, or use something that floats for the 2nd challenge.

The Ball Launcher: Build a device that will launch a table tennis ball the farthest, using only materials provided.

The Raft Resue: Build a portable device that can rescue a raft floating on water that contains a satellite telephone

These are great with regular, IEP, or enrichment students. They encourage higher level thinking skills. Realize the importance of creativity and technology, and develop the attitude of being a team player.
