Student teams are challenged to navigate a table tennis ball through a timed obstacle course using only the provided unconventional “tools.” Teams act as engineers by working through the steps of the engineering design process to complete the overall task with each group member responsible to accomplish one of the obstacle course challenges. Inspired by the engineers who helped the Apollo 13 astronauts through critical problems in space, students must be innovative with the provided supplies to use them as tools to move the ball through the obstacles as swiftly as possible. Groups are encouraged to communicate with each other to share vital information. The course and tool choices are easily customizable for varied age groups and/or difficulty levels. Pre/post assessment handouts, competition rules and judging rubric are provided.

A PBL project I did in my HS physics and math classes to allow students voice & choice in the design of a maker space my school was building. It followed the Buck Institute model and allowed students to prove mastery in a varitey of learning targets per topics in both courses (probability, geometry, functions, algebra, and trig in geometry and force, energy, electricity & magnetism, etc. in physics). Please feel free to remix this project to suit your own needs.
