Low-Cost Engineering Activity Placemats

Tufts CEEO team designed these student-facing activity cards that are meant to be printed double-sided and laminated like placemats. Each placemat gives the student an engaging design challenge that can be completed using low-cost materials like paper, cardboard, and craft materials. The placemats pair well with the Constructopedia, the guide for building mechanisms that can otherwise be tricky for students.
