Engineering design competition

After several days of designing, our class had a design competition.  Each team designed a “cargo truck” and received the same materials (wooden block car, extra block, ping pong balls, bottle filled with water, etc.)  We then had a course in the room where each student had two attempts to finish the course as quickly as possible.  Penalty time was added for running into cones are tipping over the cargo.  The students enjoyed learning from this science lesson.
