Description

Quick Build STEM Activities are the perfect addition to any classroom. Teachers who are limited on time will love using these simple STEM activities in centers, makerspaces, choice boards and more!

A quick build in STEM is like a quick write in ELA: Students will not go all the way through the engineering design process; instead, they will choose a challenge and quickly “draft” a design to build. The focus of these activities is primarily on the build. Reflection questions are also provided for those who want to add a little analysis after the build.

Quick Build STEM Challenges:

Are quick & easy to implement (~15-20 minutes)

Use 5 or fewer simple materials

Emphasize problem-solving & critical thinking

Focus on one or more STEM strands (science, technology, engineering, math)

Have built-in self differentiation; students choose between two options for each challenge

Note: Quick Build STEM activities are best completed individually or in student pairs.
