    The Escape Room

    The Pencil Box STEM Challenge

    In this challenge, students will build a container that will hold some brand new pencils. The scenario is simply that they need a container and don’t have one or don’t have room for their shiny new pencils among all the other new supplies. So, they set out to invent their own. There are some specific constraints to follow in building the box which includes handles and latches and holding the weight of the pencils. Students will use the steps of the Engineering Design Process as you follow the pages of detailed and labeled teacher directions pages.

    You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes card stock sheets, craft sticks, pipe cleaners, scissors, masking tape or clear tape, glue sticks, art supplies (construction paper, crayons, markers), new pencils, hole punchers, and copy paper.
