A Design and Engineering Challenge
The 2017 S-Games is a design and engineering contest for students in grades 6-12. This year’s competition was held on October 20 and 21st, 2017. Students were given a bag of common household items such as tape, popsicle sticks, ribbon, wax paper, paint, and plastic gloves and challenged to build a watertight bucket adhering to the theme “Old Oaken Bucket”. Teams had 3 weeks to work on their bucket and were offered 2 workshops in which to obtain guidance from mentors. Teams received scores for design/craftsmanship, adherence to theme, and spirit/presentation during the design presentations, and amount of water moved during the race competition.
