Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Build the tallest free-standing skyscraper.
In this mission, your "secret agents" must use file folders and creativity to build a free-standing structure with a spire. Critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration are needed for success!
The 8-page "confidential file" contains all the information needed to walk each agent through the engineering design process. Make copies, gather easy-to-find, inexpensive materials, and you're ready to go!
As always, if you are pleased with this product, positive feedback is much appreciated. If there are any issues or concerns, please contact me before leaving negative feedback. I am happy to work out any problems.
