Welcome to the O.R.E.O. Project 2012!
(Our Really Exciting Online Project)

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.

Project Dates:
September 17 to October 12, 2012

EXTENDED to October 19, 2012!!

You will measure the COUNT of cookies used to stack --
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 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 are NOT to use anything to stablize 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.) Students will stack ONE cookie on top of the next cookie one at a time.

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 submission 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.
