The Leo Labs Engineering Challenge
A Brain Chase favorite! With each challenge, a new scientist or engineer will treat Brain Chase students to a webisode showcasing a different science or engineering project. They’ll watch the video, then replicate the experiment on their own using everyday household materials.
Once their creations are complete, students will be asked to take a digital photograph of themselves with their experiment and upload the photo to the Engineering Challenge page. They will also have the opportunity to write a few words to describe their experience and explain what they created.
In addition to needing a digital camera each week, students will be asked to track down simple materials to complete each assignment.
