WEEK 12: DESTROYING CAMP CRUNCHLABS! FINAL EPISODE!

Your Challenge:

Rock this School Year.

Camp CrunchLabs is winding down for the year! I hope you learned a ton about engineering and enjoyed all our ridiculous videos and experiments. I loved watching all of your mind-blowingly creative Challenge submissions. Fear not, our toy makers are cranking out multiple years worth of new Build Boxes for you going forward. Thank you so much for being a part of CrunchLabs, and please use all your engineering learnings to ROCK THE UPCOMING SCHOOL YEAR!

WHAT ARE CHALLENGES?

The first 11 weekly Summer Camp videos included a challenge to do at home. Submissions could win signed patches from Mark and a chance to visit CrunchLabs! Stay tuned for next year's Summer Camp, for more Challenges and ways to win...

STAY TUNED FOR NEXT WEEK'S VIDEO & CHALLENGE!

WEEK 11: GUMMY BEAR FLAME THROWER

Your Challenge:

DO A TRICK SHOT.

Harness your inner Dude Perfect and come up with a trick shot that will blow my mind. It can be indoors or outdoors. Solo or with a friend or two. Hopefully it won't take a hundred tries (but that's part of the learning process, no?).

Be safe, be creative, have fun, and always get a parent's permission before doing anything. I can't wait to watch your one-in-a-million shots!

WEEK 10: GIANT WOOSH CANNON

Your Challenge:

MAKE A HOMEMADE MUSICAL INSTRUMENT.

Your goal is to build your very own instrument - and then make some actual music (ideally GOOD music). It can be percussive, a string thing, wind? I don't know! Maybe it's a combo of all of those and you're a one-person-band.

Have fun, be creative, get a parent's permission before doing anything, then ask them for help posting the video.

Oh! Please don't include anyone else's music in your video. I just want to hear YOU.

WEEK 9: GIANT SMOKE RINGS

Your Challenge:

MAKE A MARBLE ROLLERCOASTER.

Take a marble and make it to travel as far as possible - like a roller coaster! Maybe you make it go down the stairs, maybe you build a cardboard track for it, or maybe you use a PVC pipe. Be creative with what you have lying around the house!

As always, be safe and get a parent's permission before building. Once you've filmed it, work with your parents to share it with us!

WEEK 8: FIRE EXTINGUISHER HOVERCRAFT

Your Challenge:

MAKE AN EPIC HOUSE OF CARDS.

Rome wasn't built in a day. But it did eventually fall like a house of cards! This week, I'd love to see you build an epic house of cards (then maybe destroy it in a day). You can use a deck of cards, or maybe some random game cards you have lying around the house. Just go big. Go strong. And show me what happens!

Even though this challenge involves just cards, please get permission from a parent before you create and build and innovate. As always, I literally can't wait to watch your creative (and destructive) videos!

WEEK 7: HUMAN GLUE TRAP

Your Challenge:

BUILD A TOILET PAPER HALLWAY LASER MAZE.

Using toilet paper (or string or other materials), design and build your very own laser maze at home. See if your sibling or parent or family pet can make it through unscathed. Use creativity and acrobatics to a-maze me (bad pun, sorry). Maybe the goal is to rescue a Phat Gus plushie, or dive into a beanbag at the end.

Don't forget to get permission from a parent before you create. I can't wait to watch videos of your mazes!

WEEK 6: LASER EXPLOSIONS

Your Challenge:

MAKE SOME SHADOW ART.

This week, have fun with a flashlight to create shadow art. I recommend projecting onto a wall or curtain. You can keep it simple and use your hands to make animal shapes, or bonus points for getting creative and using items from around the house. Maybe you even design your own puppets!

As always, be sure to get permission from a parent before you create. I can't wait to watch your videos!

Week 5: RAINBOW FIREBALLS

Your Challenge:

BUILD YOUR OWN RUBE GOLDBERG MACHINE.

That's right, blow me away with a wacky one of a kind "chain reaction". A Rube Goldberg machine is a complex contraption designed to complete a simple or silly task. They are always super fun (though tricky) to build. And even more fun to watch. Maybe incorporate the Domino Catapults from the CrunchLabs Build Box, if you have 'em...

As always, be sure to get permission from a parent before you build your machine. I can't wait to watch your videos!

WEEK 4: 1,071 EXPLOSIONS IN 10 SECONDS

Your Challenge:

CHANNEL YOUR INNER PICASSO.

This week, I just want you to make something that is art related. It may be something you draw or paint, or maybe it's a sculpture you craft out of items lying around the house. Blow my mind! Show me how talented and creative you are in your videos. And remember, the process is just as important as the final piece of art. Bonus points if it's Camp or CrunchLabs related.

Don't forget - always get permission from a parent before you build or create anything. Looking forward to checking out your masterpieces...

WEEK 3: BILLIARD BALL SNAKE

Your Challenge:

THROW A PAPER CLIP POOL PARTY

This week we learn how to use surface tension to our advantage - with paper clips, water, and a little bit of soap. Your challenge is to go wild with paper clips and the new principle you learned! Maybe you set the world record for most floating paper clips. Maybe you come up with a wildly creative way to sink your paper clips. Maybe you make them dance. I don't know - just have fun with it!

And as always, get permission from a parent before you run your experiments. Looking forward to watching what you create!

WEEK 2: PING PONG EXPLOSIONS

Your Challenge:

SHOOT SOMETHING AWESOME IN SLO-MO.

It could be Lego that you drop, action figures getting tossed around, maybe it involves a piece of cake. I'm not sure. Whatever it is, blow me away with your creativity. Flex your skills as an up-and-coming filmmaker (most phones these days have a slow-mo setting). Safety is the number one rule!

And you gotta get your parents' permission for whatever you do.

WEEK 1: LEGO EXPLOSIONS

Your Challenge:

BUILD THE GREATEST PILLOW FORT EVER.

That's right. Build the greatest.pillowfort.ever. Don't get toooo crazy. But I am watching. And I have to imagine that disc launchers might be a decent first defense...

Please get your parents' permission before building anything!
