Taking on the paper table challenge

The goal for seventh-graders in Innovation & Design classes was to systematically apply the steps of the engineering design process: ask, research, imagine, plan, create, test, improve. The task: build an 8-inch tall table capable of supporting the weight of a textbook, using just a cardboard top, eight sheets of newspaper, and tape.
 
Working in the makerspace in teams of four to six, the students constructed their prototypes in a wide variety of designs, all using rolled sheets of newspaper as support columns. The students documented their progress in their engineering design notebooks, carefully noting the process and details every step of the way.
 
“The kids did an amazing job,” said teacher Tricia Mitchell. “At first it seemed a little daunting to them, but as they thought more about it and began designing, they quickly realized that they had the creativity and knowledge to succeed.”
 
The challenge was also an exercise in collaboration and communication – two essential skills necessary for success with group projects in school and the workplace.
