Container Design: High School Lesson

Container Design: High School Lesson

This activity for high school students from the Florida Advanced Technological Education (FL-ATE) Center challenges students to "come up with a NEW appealing juice container, one that will help sell their product. During this lesson, students will use math, science and engineering to work through the constraints they are given." The page here gives all the background and supporting materials an educator needs: a Florida-based company overview, videos about manufacturing and a particular juice company, the lesson plan, a PowerPoint presentation (also available in printer-friendly PDF form), and the scenario which gives the context of the project and detailed instructions for students. This excellent resource has all the components to make it ready-to-use in the classroom.
