QuickCups Challenge Set
Test engineering and teamwork skills as students stack and move cups using only string and rubber bands!
Create engaging engineering challenges involving stacking cups that introduce students to the importance of critical thinking, communication, and teamwork. Working in small or large groups, students work together to devise creative ways to complete tasks with the cups. For example, students can devise a way to stack three cups to build a pyramid or tower. They can also attempt to move a table tennis ball from one cup to another without touching the cups. In the process, students discover the importance of the type of materials used in the tasks, why it's important to work as a team, how the challenges apply to real life situations. Set includes 12 cups, 700 rubber bands, 1 spool of string, 6 table tennis balls, and lesson direction. The included lesson direction details setup instructions, activities by grade level, learning objectives, and teaching suggestions to expand lessons. Recommended for Elementary.
