Each year the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers join us for March Break, and bring with them awesome activities. We're sharing with you some of our favourites, that you can do at home. We hope you enjoy them.

Marble Maze:
1…2…3…Go! Have lots of fun with your family and friends with our marble maze. Use trial and error and your problem-solving skills to control how fast or slow your marble travels on its way to the finish line!

Paper Columns:

A Triangle, a Square or a Circle? Which one is stronger? We’ll test the strength of a piece of paper by folding it into different shaped columns and balancing objects on top.

Build a Hurricane-Resistant Tower:
Use everyday materials to build a tower that can hold up a tennis ball while resisting the force of wind from a fan. (If you want a real challenge, add a spray bottle to represent rain!) Make it a contest – who can build the tallest, strongest tower!
