Activity Description of "Support Your Local Science Books"

Title Support Your Local Science Books
Audience Middle/High School - any science
Abstract In this open-ended activity, students are presented with a problem: they must support a minimum of two science books 2cm above the lab table. Unfortunately for some of them, the materials they must use (paper, scissors, tape) do not provide an immediately obvious solution to this situation. Teacher notes are included that provide hints for optimizing this critical-thinking situation.
