Synopsis: A boy named Willis used windowslats, balloons, rubberbands and springs to design and build amazing buggies and bridges. When the contraptions got bigger and bigger and became impossible to store, there was a celebration where the strength of each structure was tested until it broke. Everyone went home knowing how to think as artists and scientists and inventers with the confidence that they could make things move when they wanted them to.

About the Author: Dr Meredith Olson has taught middle school math and science in Seattle, Washington for over 40 years. Her primary goal is the improvement of precollege engineering education. By going to lab to work on contraptions every day, her students come to understand properties of the mechanical world. In addition to classroom teaching, Dr Olson is the Program Educator for the Mars Exploration Program of Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California and a science education consultant for UNESCO to the countries of Zimbabwe, Uganda and Kenya where she is spearheading the Teaching Without Telling project. She works with universities, museums, and school districts throughout the country to promote improvement in science instruction.
