Children love challenges, especially ones that involve hands-on experimentation and friendly competition. Can they build a bridge using only pasta and glue, one that a toy car canive both under and over, and is sturdy enough to carry a considerable weight? Can they construct a roller coaster from recycled cardboard tubes in which the marble car jumps a track to land safely at its final destination? These projects and more can be found in Junkawer Engineering, which demonstrates that you don't need high-tech equipment to make learning fun--just what you can find in your recycling bin and around the house.
