The kids wanted to make ramps for their cars. It started out with one PVC pipe. IMG_E1475

Then some kids added blocks at the end of the PVC pipes to stop the cars at the end of the ramp.

Next they tried making ramps with 2 PVC pipes. They realized the starting ramp had to be on top of the second ramp for the car to keep going.

Then they tried 4 PVC pipes. They used blocks to put under the PVC pipes to help slant the ramp. This was a great engineering activity. The kids invested thought and decision making for every ramp they engineered!
