Students will enjoy practicing the engineering design process with this fun holiday STEM Activity. They'll research, design, test, and redesign their balloon rockets using an adorable chimney-shaped target to help Santa add one more reindeer to his flying team.
Help! One of Santa’s reindeer hurt his hoof during a recent reindeer game and Santa is holding try outs to fill the spot since Christmas is just days away. Build a rocket that will propel your reindeer towards the chimney-shaped target. Santa needs to make sure that the reindeer he adds to his team is an accurate flyer. Good luck!
