Learn about the man who invented one of America's favorite snack foods and join us for a potato chip themed STEM challenge!

Did you know that the potato chip was invented in 1853 by a man named George Crum? Who was this man? How did he come up with this tasty idea?

To celebrate Mr. Crum and the potato chip, we will be running a potato chip themed engineering challenge! 

All you need to participate is 1 large, UNOPENED, can of Pringles potato chips. 

So grab those chips and join us to see if you've got what it takes to be the first to master this challenge!
