PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an overview of my Fidget Spinner STEM resource, which also has helpful tips for building DIY fidget spinners. Find out the pros and cons of various materials so you can choose what is right for your students.

To complete the challenge, students will need to use higher order thinking skills and teamwork as they work in small groups to complete this challenge. They will follow these steps in the process:

ASK - Can you design a spinner that spins for X seconds?
IMAGINE - Brainstorm ideas for the spinner and then choose one.
PLAN - Create a detailed design of the spinner based on available materials.
CREATE - Build and test the spinner. Record the duration of the spin.
IMPROVE - Improve the design to make the spinner spin longer. This may include adding material, removing material, or starting over.
REFLECT and SHARE - Present findings to peers. Ask for feedback. If you have time, host and engineering design review.
