WThanks for the link! This is a great activity for students to be creative and use their problem solving skills. This activity also helps the students understand more what engineering it's about which is great because they get to know the different branches of science .

The two challenges provided on this website are excellent for elementary students to encourage many important skills such as creative problem solving, measuring, and spacial relationships. I look forward to doing these with my students.

This is a great website! I like that you can give students materials and have them build with using just those materials. It would be neat to see what their imagination would have in store for them.

This is very interesting. I think that these are very good hands on activities that we could maybe use in workstations to enrich a students knowledge. It is also a great way to help introduce students to engineering. Thanks for sharing!

The activities look like that would be so engaging to elementary students. I would add some recording of data, - for example how far the pom poms went for each method/attempt. Then do some compare and contrast on best methods. Fun!

I explored this link a bit and think this would be so much fun! I am a student at the University of Northern Iowa about to enter into student teaching, and I think the idea of a mystery bag that incorporates engineering and measuring and mathematics. I remember putting together a marble maze in sixth grade, and while I had a lot of fun with it, it was a very challenging task and could definitely be altered to fit the elementary level.
