After School Week 3

After School Week 2

Air Mail Challenge

During week two, Girlstart's After School girls worked as manufacturing engineers and used the engineering design process to develop the best packaging option for fragile items. Their challenge was to protect a Pringles chip and were given a variety of materials to do so. The catch was that their packaging had to protect the chip during a fall to the ground AND a fall into water.
