Junk Box Wars

"To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk." Thomas Edison

 

The Junk Box Wars projects are modeled after the Junkyard Wars TV show that aired on the Learning Channel network. Each week, students will receive a STEM based challenge and will need to use their use their imaginations, scientific knowledge, and a really cool box of "junk" to create a variety of devices that perform an assortment of tasks either individually or as a group. Students will then compete against each other, either individually or as teams to see if their project can handle the challenge of the “Junk Box Wars”.
