This Ship the Chip activity & project also includes:
- Lab & Experiment
- Join to access all included materials
Here is a tasty challenge, especially for middle school engineers: design a container that meets mass and volume criteria, and will safely transport a tortilla or potato chip through the mail without damaging it! Mostly, this is a crisp instructional activity in engineering design. What fun it will be to receive the packages back and open them to find out which team will reign as the chip-shipping champions!
- A clever approach to engineering design
- Encourages collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving
- Can be used to meet various engineering goals for the Next Generation Science Standards
