Welcome to a new “spin” on STEM! You will need to have a paper clip for each group in order to use the spinners as well as the basic supplies needed:
found materials copy paper straws
aluminum foil craft sticks masking tape
yarn scissors tape measure
weights (pennies work well) tub of water
Students can spin choices for their group, or you can spin choices for the whole class. Either way, the spinners add an element of excitement and unexpectedness to the typical STEM Challenge!
This pack includes the three spinners, background information about different types of boats, lab sheets, and teacher directions.
