Cardboard Chair

The cardboard chair was a interesting and difficult project. The amount of rules and specifications were vast and were difficult to meet.EX- 100% cardboard, No tape or adhesive, 16 inch min. width, 16 inch min. height, 30 inch min. back, under 7 pounds.


If we had a second chance at this building challenge I would attempt to make the chair lighter more ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing.

Index card bridge

The index card bridge was a simple ,yet very difficult build challenge. The specifications were low ,but were challenging to meet.EX- 100% index cards, Be able to support 16 pennies, a 6 inch gap with no supports. Even though most specifications were difficult to meet and to successfully complete it was still fun and a learning experience.


If I had the chance to redo this challenge I would've listened to my teacher and weaved the cards to make a stronger bridge.

If I would do it again i would make it wider and more stable.
