Shake, Rattle, and Rescue at The Tech This Weekend

The Tech Challenge is on this Saturday at the 25th annual Tech Challenge. Teams of students in grades 5-12 are asked to find a solution for a real-world problem, with this year’s design challenge theme being Shake, Rattle and Rescue. Participants have spent the past few weeks devising a solution to help earthquake survivors stranded on a bridge. (Sound familiar and a little scary? Good thing these kids are working on a solution.)

The purpose of the challenge is to encourage kids to learn the scientific process through a hands-on method aimed at solving a real world need. According to The Tech, it provides reinforcement of the skills children need in the 21st century: creativity, problem solving, design, teamwork, leadership, presentation, risk-taking, perseverance, and learning from failure – all combined in a hands-on science and engineering project geared to solving on a real world problem.

Head out to The Tech this Saturday to check out the design solutions and to congratulate the kids on a job well done!
