Contains separate activities for middle school and high school students as well as links to career information and applications of the 4Cs (communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity).
Equipment and materials needed to complete guide activities include the Pitsco Toothpick Bridges – Getting Started Package, as well as other tools and materials. Items needed for all activities are listed in the teacher guide.
