Guess The Tool Puzzle Keeps Busting Brackets

Guess The Tool Puzzle Keeps Busting Brackets

New puzzles are designed to help keep students engaged and have a chance to win some prizes.

We aren’t TRYING to fool you, though you may not always agree. Sometimes, the clue just leads you down the wrong path.

Just as last month’s Guess The Tool clue had people getting distracted by what was IN the image, and losing sight of what the image REPRESENTS, it happened again in September. This month, it’s not a ball peen hammer (or any variation of that term) – it’s a Bead Breaker.

Those little round things are beads getting broken with, you guessed it, a bead breaker.

Continued thanks to BCA Bearings by NTN for sponsoring our contests!
