PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This STEM project encourages teamwork as students utilize the Engineering Design Process to design, build, test and re-engineer a marble maze created with limited materials. Each group is given a box or bag with the same materials and each team has the same time to design the best possible maze that will allow a standard marble to make the longest possible run.

Students use the first day to choose teams, understand the project expectations, and complete the Engineering Process Design Worksheet. The next three days, they are building the maze. Finally, on the fifth day of the project, each team competes to see which maze wins!

This lesson includes:

1. Teacher Resources and Information
2. Engineering Design Process Worksheet
3. Team sign up sheet
4. Junk Box War Maze Project Expectations
5. Alternate Writing Assignment
6. Competition Scoring Sheet

My 7th and 8th graders love this project each year and really compete to win! I hope your students enjoy it too.

Remember to leave feedback for credits on future purchases!
