What needs to be considered when designing an effective and safe chair lift? In an engaging and challenging inquiry experiment, young engineers work with teams to design and build a chair lift capable of carrying a tennis ball, a Ping-Pong ball, or a golf ball safely up a tiny mountain. Once complete, teams share their designs with each other and reflect upon their own designs, thinking about what worked well and what could be improved.
