Ship the Chip Activity

SWE-RVA is pleased to share an engineering design activity that can be adapted to students of all ages. With the Ship the Chip activity, students are packaging engineers and are challenged to design a package for safely shipping a single potato chip.

Below are three documents to accompany the activity. The Lesson Plan document contains information to assist the activity facilitator including the materials required. The Worksheet document is a handout to guide the students through the activity. The Girls in Engineering presentation is used to present some background on the engineering career field.
