Today, Tuesday, is the last day for construction of the bridges.
We will test them on Friday, giving the glue plenty of time to dry and set up.
While we are letting the bridges dry, we have a new, fun, project to work on.
"The Pringles Challenge"
Your task is to design a package the will allow a single Pringles Potato Chip to be safely mailed through the US Postal Service to our partner school. Our partner school is Waipahu Intermediate School in Hawaii!
You may work individually or in small groups. You are responsible for finding the materials for making your package (I will have some materials). The package must adhere to US Postal Service Guidelines and will be mailed via First Class Mail (I will mail them). The rules and scoring info are listed below.
We will be scoring the ones sent to us by our partner school.
Be creative and work efficiently. Will will have some time this week in class to work on them also.
The packages are due this Friday before we test the bridges.
