Engineering Challenge

Materials needed: Popsicle sticks, clothespins, binder clips

Use this as a hands-on experience in order to create an engineered structure that’s able to withstand 5 challenges. With each challenge, try and build a new structure! This activity helps build strong teamwork and communication skills. The challenges you must withstand are to build a structure that can support the most possible weight, build the tallest structure, build the tallest structure with the fewest clothespins, try building a structure only out of triangles, and build a domino chain.
