Engineering Challenges are an exciting part of the new NGSS Standards. I love the collaboration and team building that these projects bring to my classroom. My students LOVE the excitement and engagement that naturally occurs while they are actively participating!
In this challenge, students are given 3 types of material and have to collaborate on what kind of table they can make. The team sketches a design they all agree they can create and then set out on the journey to build a table. I do not set a timer, but this activity is easily adaptable to any changes you want to add, such as a timer or adding a different variable.
Perfect for grades 3 and beyond. I have used this with adults and the results are just as eye opening and engaging!
