Touchdown challenge - 0 views

  •  
    Design and build a shock-absorbing system that will protect two "astronauts" when they land. In this challenge, kids follow the engineering design process to: (1) design and build a shock-absorbing system out of paper, straws, and mini-marshmallows; (2) attach their shock absorber to a cardboard platform; and (3) improve their design based on testing results."
