Board Game Design Challenge

Engineers are people who like to know how things work. They design and build things people use every day, like computers, phones, roads, bridges and cars. They use their imaginations to solve problems and create new products. Create board games and engineer your own game spinner using GoldieBlox.

  1. Come up with an idea for your board game
  2. Design a spinner for your game
  3. Test your game and make it better

When I’ve earned this badge, I will have created my own board game and learned what inventors and engineers do.

Lesson plans for this badge are available from Volunteer Toolkit or Girl Scouts Far North Council.
