The Challenge: 2013

The idea behind the Pringles Challenge is simple.  Your task is to design a package that will allow a single Pringles Potato Chip to be safely mailed through the US Postal Service to another location in the United States. 

Students will work individually or in small groups to design their packaging.  The package must adhere to US Postal Service guidelines and should be shipped during the window listed below, via First Class Mail.  Schools will be working with a primary partner in an effort to match up the number of packages shipped/received.

The timeline for this year's Pringles Challenge is as follows:
