Class Experience

This is a STEM class, and while there will be no formal teaching, students will have to use problem solving skills in order to complete the engineering challenge.
Students likely will not have enough time during the actual class period to finish their construction.  Students should work to complete their project one day before the class begins the following week.  There is no maximum time limit on construction, but the challenge should be able to be completed within an hour.
Household trash/recycling - paper, boxes, plastic battles, etc. Optional supplies - scissors, glue, tape, rubber bands, paper clips
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Each student will be creating their own project out of household trash.  How they build it is up to them, but they may need assistance with any cutting or gluing of materials they are using.
