CreateKit Foosball Kit

In Stock
Unit:  Ea

Students discover how friction, gravity, force, and design are required to create a working foosball game!

Students are challenged to think critically as they collaborate to construct a homemade foosball table using parameters set by the teacher. They begin by brainstorming and sketching their designs. After approved by the teacher, students take supplies and get to work. Parameters to follow include a minimum number of players, an additional slot in the center to drop the ball, and multiple goals on either end. Groups must have one successful play of their game caught on video to complete the challenge, then discuss the results using the Engineering Design Process. What worked the first time? What didn't?
