In this challenge students will be using craft sticks and glue to make a spinning Ferris Wheel. The wheel has two sides and students must be diligent in making the sides match in size. In addition, the two sides must be joined together and space left in the centers to add a central turning rod or axle. Add making a frame to hold the wheel aloft and you have a truly spectacular STEM challenge.
