This week’s #makerspace highlight was Easter Egg themed. Here are some of our successes!
I challenged students to choose one of the following: 1) make a parachute, with plastic egg attached, that would float the longest (supply options: coffee filters, pipe cleaners, tape, yarn)
2) use 15 pipe cleaners to build a structure that would hold 3 plastic eggs.
3) the tallest free-standing tower that incorporates plastic eggs (using pipe cleaners and/or K'Nex)
Most students chose the parachute option. I love that many ended up with version 4.0 of their parachute design. It was truly a maker mindset class!
