Design ChallengesThis week we switched gears and all of the classes were given a design challenge to work on. Before starting we talked about the design process.

The Paper Table Design ChallengeThe Summerland class and the Wednesday morning Penticton class were asked to build a table at least 20 cm tall that can support a heavy textbook. The challenge? The students were only allowed to use the following materials:
- 8 sheets of newspaper
- masking tape
- one 8" x 10" piece of cardboard
Below are some photos of the building process (link):
Students will continue to work on this challenge next week.
