Homeschool Pringle Challenge

From my inbox:

For immediate release!! Share with all homeschoolers you know!!

For students to design and test a container for shipping a single Pringles™ potato chip, via the US Postal Service. The participating homeschools will be matched up via this web page. Students will exchange packages with homeschools somewhere in the United States. Upon arrival the packages will be evaluated and scored using the format in the scoring section.

To engineer the package to have the smallest volume and smallest mass that will protect the chip so that it arrives at its destination undamaged.
