Complete these four challenges to earn your Whizz Pop Bang Epic Engineer badge…

1)  Identify a problem

Describe the problem or challenge that you’re planning to solve with engineering, e.g. safely zipwire teddies out of your bed into a toy box, engineer a bridge that can hold a heavy weight or create a tall tower using only newspapers.

2) Design a solution

Draw or write down a plan showing how you are going to solve your problem or challenge. Try to think through some difficulties that might arise and plan how to overcome them. For example, how could you reduce friction if you’re creating a zipwire?

3) Get building

Time to start construction! Use materials that you have around the house whenever possible – the recycling box is your friend! Send us a photo of your construction.

4) Test and improve your design

Does your solution work? If not, don’t worry! Try to think of some improvements you could make and tell us about them.
