Suggested Science Idea(s)


Dazzlinks are fun and easy to build for all skill levels from beginners to experts. Endless possibilities for engineering challenges. Learners can utilize the Dazzlinks to take on a variety of real-world problems. Constructing solutions with multiple designs is the beauty of Dazzlinks. 3D structures can be built and rebuilt until the student succeeds with a viable design.

Allow students to use their cell phones to take photos of their project at various stages of development. Sharing photos provides opportunities for students to collaborate and contribute their own input for improvements. This reinforces the benefit of breaking a problem into smaller, more manageable steps.
