Original post from Sept. 13, 2012: Several area Fort Wayne teams are registering to secure their spot in this challenging event that raises money for Early Childhood Alliance. Hurry, registration ends on September 22, 2012 (after this date, call to see if there is room). If you don't want to participate, you at least have to see the Plank-a-Palooza! structures that are constructed to believe them!
You may ask, what is a Plank-a-Palooza!? It's a challenging event in which teams use 500 KEVA planks to design and build a structure in 30 minutes. No glue is needed, just gravity. This highly energized construction event creates interest in math and science and encourages creativity and collaboration. Teams members are all ages and come from all walks of life, friends, families, schools, business, clubs, etc.
Now you are asking, what are KEVA planks? KEVA planks are precision cut maple blocks (about 1/4" x 3/4" x 4 1/2") that stack on four different planes with surprising stability.
