Mystery Box Challenge – Teacher’s Guide

Our Mystery Box Challenge presents kids with a prompt to invent something. Just one catch: you can only use materials inside the box. Kids are challenged to think in terms of design — What does this invention need to do? How can I build it so it does that AND stays together? Throughout the process kids tap into their critical thinking skills and can also develop their communication skills by explaining the steps they took.
