Teacher feedback:

  • I already have the women scientists ready to use next month. Can't wait to get together with our buddy class to try out the STEM challenges! And the biography passage is perfect for reading intervention groups.
  • My students loved the stem challenge of making a basketball game with only recyclable materials that they could play with a Ping-Pong ball. They were very engaged and willing to continually try to improve it.
  • This was an amazing resource to use as a PBL and test prep activity that my students adored and begged for more. Thank you. We actually used them for indoor recess as a way to "test them out" and vote on the team with the best one. Thank you.
  • This was one of the best STEM projects for March Madness. Man students loved it. Thank you.
