Are you looking for an exciting challenge that will put your engineering skills to the test? Design and assemble your own "fishing" rod using various materials. Once your rod is ready, explore how many items you can "fish for" using the magnetic hook.

This challenge will be entertaining and educational, offering an interactive lesson in magnetism and problem-solving. Compete with other makers and discover which design attracts the most objects!

Please note, The Forge will be closed June 16—18.
