Who doesn't love a STEM challenge??? In this STEM Challenge, students are asked to create a city model for a futuristic city. The catch is they can ONLY use recycled items to construct their model.
This file provides you with everything you need to complete this challenge.
~All steps of the design process labeled and with a task to
complete at each one.
~A STEM reflection sheet to use at the end of this challenge
~A letter to send home for supplies~
~A PowerPoint Presentation~
~A step by step display to keep students on track
~Lab sheets, possible answers, and helpful questions for you
and your students to think about as they create their city
~You have the ability to change some of the wording on the
presentation if needed.
This STEM challenge is perfect for the end of your conservation unit. This is a wonderful project for students to see what they can personally do for their world. If you do not do a conservation unit, do not worry! This is a great challenge to use for earth day, to review the steps of the design engineering process, or simply to have students collaborate with their peers.
