The 2019 Challenge

Teams across Pennsylvania are being tasked with creating a machine that will move 3 objects at
least 6 inches across a table. The “crane” must pick up the object, move it at least 6 inches and set it
back down. Your team can choose the objects that need to be moved. Please consider how
environmentally friendly your machine is while presenting about your project. Be creative!

Additional Middle School Challenge

Teams competing in the grades 6-8 division will also be asked to present a budget of their project. They will need to inventory each K’Nex piece they use and list a price for each piece. They will need to present their inventory and an overall cost of their project.
