Bridge challenges. Physics challenges. "Build the widest structure with only two planks touching the ground." Simple parameters with unlimited solutions. Students must experiment with the forces on cantilevers, fulcrums, balance, triangulation etc. Explore the golden mean, optimum proportions.
Structures can be incredibly complex. Problem solving, teamwork, creativity happen automatically. Students feel like, engineers, inventors and sculptors. The level of concentration will impress you.
Exceptional children build exceptional structures.
"I am a teacher of the gifted in Kansas. I was eager to see what my jaded 6th grade students would do with KEVA and they were soon engulfed in the activity. Our class time literally flew by too quickly. I have used the planks with students from kindergarten to sixth grade and they all universally love your product and beg to have a KEVA Day."
