Miss Spitalnick’s 3rd grade class and Mrs. Saunders’ 4th grade class are currently involved in a national engineering challenge. Both classes have been matched up with teachers and students from schools in Arizona in the Pringle’s Brand sponsored project. The object is for the students to design and test a container for shipping a single Pringles potato chip via the US Postal Service that is expected to arrive unbroken. The packages will be scored based on criteria including: container materials and originality, quality of chip on arrival, size limitations, and timeliness. Both classes have begun the design process and are eager to start testing their work. Contact has been made with the Arizona schools and video conferencing will enable students to see their packages being opened. The most difficult part of the challenge is to design without consuming the chips!
