District JunkBox Challenge Winners

Winners in the district Junkbox Challenge

Making STEM fun and engaging is important as more and more students are considering their options and pursuing their interests and talents. One excellent example is this recent event...called a Junkbox Challenge, because of the kinds of materials used. This district-wide challenge for students was to build a contraption out of recycled materials to accomplish a fun, if not strange purpose. This task was to design a "Punkin' Chunkin'" machine that fired candy corn pumpkins.
