his product is an NGSS aligned assignment to be completed by middle school students during a STEM challenge.
STEM challenges are a great way to engage students of all ages in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. They are becoming increasingly popular with older students to re-ignite their creativity, improve critical thinking, and make school fun!
It is incredibly easy to grade with a student-friendly rubric!
