Participants will be involved in a build activity that puts mathematics into action. All materials will be provided and the participants will be able to take their item home. The mathematics exploration involved will be at the grades 6–8 level, to include circumference, measurement, ratios and proportions, but the activity can easily be extended to algebra 1, geometry, and physics. Participants will brainstorm ways to use the activity in the classroom.
