Summer Camp 2016: Engineering with K'nex

Our Summer Campers used K'nex along with their imaginations to design cars that would keep their eggs safe on many adventures. 

Their eggs traveled down the playground, the grassy hill and even the playground slides! Three out of the five eggs survived all but the most difficult challenge: the bumpy slide. The two eggs that met their demise on the bumpy slide did, however, survive all of the other adventures.

These experiments led to discussions about slope, velocity and vehicle design. The campers were anxious to get back to the room and redesign some of their vehicles.
