REGISTRATION FOR O.R.E.O. 2017 opens August 2017!
Welcome to the O.R.E.O. Project 2016!
(Our Really Exciting Online Project)
hosted by ProjectsByJen.com
Classrooms around the world are invited to participate.
Classrooms will need to have each student stack oreo® cookies as high
as he or she can and then average all their individual results to achieve a final Class result.
September 12 to October 14, 2016
This project is now over for 2016! See you next year!
You will measure the COUNT of cookies used to stack --
NOT height of stack.
Each participating class needs at least
1 bag of Nabisco's Oreo® Chocolate and
Creme Sandwich Cookies.
(classrooms need to use the REGULAR oreo cookie --
not double stuf or triple double or thin for their average.
IF you wish to use the different kinds as a class comparison -- that is fine.)
Students will estimate how many oreos
they are able to stack before their oreos® tumble.
Students will stack ONE cookie on top
of the next cookie one at a time.
Students are NOT to use anything to stabilize the cookie
and they are NOT able to adjust cookies as they stack.
(i.e....once they have placed the cookie and their hand
has left the cookie, they may NOT
adjust that cookie again.)
Once a cookie tumbles (or the stack tumbles) the total count
of oreos® stacked needs to be recorded.
Each student will have TWO attempts to stack oreos® and
will record the highest amount they were able
to stack before tumbling.
Teachers should explain to their students that this is a project with schools all
over the world and also explain what information this project is attempting to collect.
They should also discuss that at the end of the project,
all results will from their classroom will be averaged and posted!
After every participant (yes, teachers are encouraged to stack too)
has had two attempts and has recorded their highest stack,
the class will add all the highest stacks together
and then divide by the # of participants to get a CLASS AVERAGE.
After you have the class average, please visit the results page to share your results.
After you have submitted your results, you will be directed to a page
where you can print out the certificate of participation.
