The collaborative project offers engineering challenges that involve simple machines, communications skills, integration of technology into the curriculum, and collaborative learning. Additional concepts addressed in specific challenges include: drama, art, gravity, friction, and magnetism.

All of the challenges are open- ended and allow for many different variations of designs. Students have the opportunity to post their rough draft designs, receive comments and suggestions on their design solutions, and publish their final designs in our Design Challenge Contest
