Puzzle Building STEM Challenge

I have to say that I was totally surprised at how challenging this STEM challenge really is since it seems so simple!  Here is the challenge question:

Can your team build a puzzle without speaking and without seeing the picture on the box in the fastest time?
The fastest team completed the challenge in just over 15 minutes and the slowest team completed it in just over 24 minutes.   They all felt as if they had accomplished a huge task and they worked together to do it! Yeah!  We used 100 piece puzzles from the Dollar Tree that were all Spongebob themed!  The students did not get to see the box at all, but since they were familiar with the topic it helped a little.  
Want to try this challenge with your kiddos?  Here is the link to the STEM Challenge.




I wonder how fast your kids could accomplish this challenge?
