This year, my students and I are taking up the challenge of organizing the Pringles Challenge. A STEM event that asks students to design a package which will allow the safe transport of a single Pringles potato chip to another school somewhere in the US. The packages will be scored, and receive higher scores for having the smallest mass and volume to safely transport the chip. So far, 15 schools have signed on for this year’s Challenge. If you know a math, science or engineering teacher that might be interested in joining the Challenge, point them toward this site:
Sign-ups run through April 3rd, so there’s still time to get involved!
