Required Materials: The participant who will be doing the writing must bring a writing utensil and paper. The builder will need the resources listed below.
This is a 2 part event. In the first part, one team member will view a constructed object (k’nex, legos, tinker toys, pipe cleaners, styrofoam bowls, craft supplies, etc) and write a description of how to build it without using any pictures, diagrams, or symbols. The written description will then be given to their teammate who has not seen the object. Given a corresponding set of materials, the team member will then attempt to rebuild the object from the written description.
The participant who will be doing the writing must bring a writing utensil. No other materials or resources are allowed.
High Score wins. Points are earned for correct connections, placement, color, etc. Ties will be broken by shortest construction phase.
