Elf Technology

The students were put into mixed groups - groups where they had to work with people who would not normally be their first choice group-mates. The goal was for them to work collaboratively. They were asked to build the tallest shelf they could for a Christmas Elf to sit on. All they had was twelve popsicle sticks and some playdough.

Will it hold?...

 A good early effort. Could they build bigger?
 Nate, Vincent and Jayden had a very sold design. 31 cm!

 32 cm!

 Not sure what's going on here...
