This lesson is terrific not only for engineering, but also to develop teamwork and synergy! The task was to build a structure 18 inches or taller out of index cards in 20 minutes . It needed to support a stuffed Scooby Doo for at least 15 seconds.
The most helpful part of the design cycle was to analyze/revise! After seeing what did NOT work, teams regrouped and tried new designs!
It was awesome to watch the kids succeed and inspire each other!
