It’s time for some speedy science! Students work in groups to build a bobsled and explore what variables can be changed to make it travel faster or slower down the track in this open-ended challenge.

About Engineering Challenges

Our Engineering Challenges are an opportunity for students to investigate scientific phenomena while working collaboratively to imagine, plan, create, test, and improve on solutions to design challenges. Students will use their own creativity and real scientific tools to evaluate their creations.

Engineering Challenges can be added to your group visit for an additional fee. Click here for pricing.
