Using everyday materials around us, we can have fun with quick and simple Engineering Design Challenges and Activities. Newspaper is a common and versatile item that is stronger than we think. In this session, we’ll take you through a Newspaper Design Challenge examining how to combine different structures to maximize stability and how to create a sturdy geodesic dome. After this workshop, you’ll be able to run design challenges with your students – all with supplies they have at home. For this workshop, you’ll need some newspaper.
