Jack has his share of troubles in the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk. What if students could use some engineering to help him out? As engineers, students are only limited by their imaginations and the materials they have available. With the giant claiming to smell him, and time running out, Jack would have really appreciated a mechanical grabber to get the golden egg and be on his way. In this STEM lessons the challenge is to design and build a device that can grab an item from a distance. Mechanical engineering to the rescue!
