Next week is the College for Kids class I am teaching entitled, "Engineering Through Models", there will be model solar cars and mousetrap cars, probably foam gliders also. From previous classes I have learned handing out materials can be a hassle and waste of time. So I am packaging everything in re-sealable bags. This is a fair amount of work but not sure how else to handle this. When there is a dozen to two dozen parts for each kit I could spend a lot of time passing out materials. Would welcome any other methods that work well. Bill Kuhl
