Boks Kids Weekly Challenge

Engineering is about bringing ideas to life. This week we challenge you to build your own obstacle course within your classroom or at home. Run through your obstacle course for at least 10 minutes each day, making sure to modify the course every day to see what you can do to improve it or how you can change it, so you are challenged more progressively each day.
