Design Thinking Challenge

Today we started our Design Thinking Challenges. The students had 100 index cards, tape and scissors. They had 30 minutes to create the tallest free standing tower that could hold the weight of a book for 10 seconds. What I am looking for in this process is collaboration and problem finders. Problem finders are people who see what is wrong with something and try to create a solution. The kids did an amazing job working together to create towers. We are all looking forward to our next challenge!
