Design and Build a Road Sign Support

Emergent engineers plan, construct, and experiment with a spaghetti noodle structure that could be used to hold a load. Set them up for success by first showing them a four-minute video on engineering design and a slide show of different signposts. There is also a super cool interactive website that they can visit to view how different shapes can be strengthened. The lesson plan comes with memorable and modern resources to support the classic hands-on activity.
