Product Description
The first in an on-going series of problem based challenges that integrate science, technology, and engineering with math
Students are challenged to design and construct a box that holds 24 Starburst candies and a plastic tube that holds 6 golf balls.
Both package design problems require metric measurements (using calipers), calculations, design and construction using readily available and inexpensive supplies. Calipers can be ordered from any STEM catalog. Mechanical "outside" calipers are satisfactory but I would highly recommend inexpensive, digital calipers. The Starburst challenge can be completed without calipers, but the Golf Ball challenge does require their use unless raw data (diameter) is provided. Use of calipers is really what makes this into an engineering experience for students. Don't forget to let them eat a Starburst or two!
