Rollin' in Style!: Students Design Bike Mounted Skateboard Racks
Massey, Rick
Tech Directions, v67 n6 p24-25 Jan 2008
Recognizing the increasing popularity of skateboarding, the author has found a project that teaches design and manufacturing concepts--and, of equal importance, really gets his students motivated. He challenges them to design and build a skateboard rack that mounts easily on a bicycle. The project benefits students by teaching creativity, the design process, problem solving, engineering concepts, and teamwork skills. (Contains 1 table.)
