This series focuses on those skills as well as the other “soft-skills” that aren’t necessarily spelled our in the curriculum, but make students well-rounded problem solvers.
This week’s challenge is the Gumdrop Bridge. In this challenge, students work in teams to design and build a bridge that will span a specific distance. Sounds like a pretty easy challenge, but as students start experimenting with their materials, they will find that there is more there than beats the eye.
This fun little challenge encourages students to work on team building, collaboration and communication skills- more of those soft skills- that help students become successful in a workplace environment.
