I hope to see everyone at next month’s face-to-face E-CSLIT Meeting on April 4th from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm!  It’s our last one of the school year!


 

What’s up E-CSLIT leaders and teachers?

Here’s your challenge for our next meeting happening on Thursday, March 7th at the CEC.

The Challenge:
Using one single newspaper edition and 1 role of masking tape, make a table that’s at least eight inches tall and strong enough as much weight as possible.  The table that can hold the most weight before collapsing wins!

Rules:
1. One newspaper edition only (Saturday or Sunday have the biggest editions 🙂 )
2. Masking tape can only be used to stick things together, not as structural support (eg. you can’t tape up every surface of your table to make it stronger
3. Your table must have 4 legs (you can support those legs, but it must have 4 legs)
4. Your table must have a top – you should be able to place an item as small as a fork or cup on your table or as large as a plate

Below an example….use your creativity and teamwork! (This table uses string which is not permitted in our challenge)

Table

See you March 7th with your tables!

Good Luck!  HAVE FUN!!!
