What a better way to learn than to disguise it as having fun 😉 In this challenge, students work with a team to design and build a container that will best preserve an ice cube.
I usually have students complete this challenge in pairs because the project is seems straight-forward to build, but becomes complex as students begin to think of materials choices and how to best “protect” the ice cube.
So, what did we learn?
