A.J. Katzenmaier teacher Danielle Pinkus and her 4th grade class took the Solo Cup Challenge. Teams of 3-4 students were given 6 solo cups, and a rubber band that had an equal number of strings of yarn tied to it. 

Teams needed to build a tower without using their hands. Instead, each student must hold their piece of string and work together with their group to guide the rubber band and create the structures.

By encouraging collaboration, students learn and develop social skills, improve self-confidence and sets students up for future success.
