Integrate STEM in your Classroom at the beginning of the year!
STEM Challenges are perfect to use at the beginning of the school year as students are learning how to work in groups.
In this STEM Activity, students build teamwork and problem solving skills as they work together to transfer marbles from one cup to another without touching the marbles or cups with their hands.
The STEM Process:
Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't. This STEM Project aligns with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
