Theo the Dog has a problem. He wants to carry a stick across a bridge but the stick is too wide for the narrow bridge. Can you help him design a solution to help him carry his stick over the bridge using Makers Empire 3D software?

In this new step-by-step video, we’ll show your students how to design a device to help Theo transport his stick over a narrow bridge.

Remember, this is just an example of one design that could solve this problem. Your students should create their own designs. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
