Unshackled Learning


This is a fun S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activity that I actually found on Youtube, but I created a project around it for my class to make sure that they use the Engineering Design Process correctly. I thought that I would share it with the Teachers Pay Teachers world because it is a fun activity that forces the students to understand hydraulics or fluid power technology. It also uses recycled and inexpensive materials to create a fun and practical product.
