The "No Trucks" Design Challenge
Roman, Harry T.
Technology Teacher, v67 n3 p32-33 Nov 2007
Large tractor-trailers have a reputation of being involved in rather horrific accidents, often involving death and carnage among smaller passenger vehicles. The giant rigs, according to some transportation experts, may have outlived their usefulness on crowded highways, and perhaps it is time that people rethink their presence on the roads. In this article, the author presents an activity that will challenge students to create new ways of moving truck cargo.
