Parents! You can use the Nucor Strength of Steel program to sharpen your child's innovative engineering skills as they develop a steel structure that can be used to support another object or objects and is suitable for use in the home, school, or a transportation vehicle.
Brainstorm with your family and motivate your child to build a steel structure for your home! Please note that the Nucor Strength of Steel Challenge is a team competition - so motivate your child to team up with friends and brainstorm!
Look around your home — are there supporting structures that can be improved upon? Is there something you really need that hasn’t been invented yet? Think about your child’s hobbies — could he or she use a structure to hold sporting or band equipment?
Look at the three categories below. Help your child come up ideas for at least two inventions in each category.
