Need a quick activity that requires only newspaper and tape? Maybe an activityÂ for a family science night?
|Consider this online resourceÂ adapted from PBS that combines science and engineering.
It includes a clearly written procedure, vocabulary, background, and suggestions for an assessment. It could be completedÂ by teams of engineer/scientists in your classroom!
My students love this activity. The site suggests 20 minutes but my students always ask for more time to try variations they’ve seen other teams attempt. That’s what scientists do right, build on each other’s work?
