K'Nex Ferris wheel

A new amusement park is being built and the chief engineer wants your team to design and build a Ferris Wheel for it.

The Ferris wheel should:

  • Be stable
  • Have a base to sit on
  • Be able to rotate
  • Have at least four seats

Things to think about:

  • How are you going to make your design strong and stable?
  • How will you connect the wheel to the base?
  • How are you going to put seats on the Ferris wheel?
  • Can you make the seats swing?
  • Can you make the Ferris wheel turn with a handle?
