This Ship the Chip lesson plan also includes:
Engineers face a variety of challenges to solve; help your future engineers practice designing a solution to a simple, yet common issue: shipping items without damage. Teams will work together to design and test a shipping system for a single potato chip; success will be based upon how many pieces the chip is in once it has been through the postal system and returned to the school - the fewer breaks, the higher the score.
- Simple materials
- Engaging and relevant activities
- Encourages design reiteration
- Excellent STEM activity
- Teacher or school will need to pay for shipping of each package
