  • James Dyson Foundation

    The James Dyson Foundation have released a series of engineering challenges for students. Do you want to make a chair out of cardboard, you own electromagnet, or a clock timed by precise amounts of water? These activities will help with academics and are also great for life skills like problem solving, communication and perseverance. All the challenge cards can be read online so no need to print.
