Paper Engineering in Technology: Bridges, Rockets, and Roller Coasters
These three Paper Engineering projects were born out of a desire not to disrupt Technology students from hands-on engagement in the Engineering Design Process, while realizing the limited and readily available resources they have at home.
Students experienced great success!!! STEAM Education and Cross-Cutting Concepts were in full force as students imagined, designed, problem-solved, constructed, evaluated, and improved their own unique and functioning creations. Rocket Science, Structural Engineering, Material Processing, Forces and Motion highlight just a few of the concepts that students explored and put to use with only paper, tape, and scissors.
