Integrate STEM in your classroom at the Beginning of the School Year!
Start the school year strong with hands-on STEM Activities! Get students excited about learning with engineering. Students build a cup tower, complete the marble challenge, build a tower of books, and design a straw structure!
Each of these activities are perfect to use at the beginning of the school year as students are learning how to work in groups. So get started today!
The STEM Process:
Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activities, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.
These STEM Projects align with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
