- Learn about engineering design.
- Learn about motion, load, and construction.
- Learn about teamwork and working in groups.
As a result of this activity, students should develop an understanding of:
- structural engineering and design
- problem solving
Students learn how big wheels have been designed throughout history, and then work in teams to develop a design for their own pasta wheel. Teams plan their wheel, execute construction, troubleshoot, evaluate their own work and that of other students, and present to the class.
