Basketball and STEM!
Let’s engineer a basketball return system!
The town of STEM-a-lot is planning to build a special basketball hoop in honor of March basketball tournaments. Since they already have regular basketball hoops, this time they would like to have one that automatically returns the ball. Your students will use the engineering design process as they work on this challenge. Included in the packet are teacher notes, inquiry questions, student role cards, student handouts, the engineering design process poster, and a rubric.
Materials needed are:
Paper or Styrofoam plates
