Design Wars

8th Grade Orientation and Week 1: Design Wars Challenge

On Wednesday, students shared their designs to transport the 8th grade teachers’ “Precious Cargo” around Green Lake. A perfect way to start the year, this engineering challenge combined community building, collaboration, and creativity. Students pitched their designs, complete with modeled prototypes, jingles, and “twitter length” descriptions. For teachers, it was very fun to share a little about ourselves and see the quirky contraptions they came up with to accommodate our “precious cargo”, including pets, partners, kids, african violets, and Yoda. Check out these pictures from the project!

Here’s a link to the Design Wars assignment overview.
