    Bundle Description

    STEM challenges your students will love! Whether you already implement STEM challenges with your students or if you have thought about doing STEM challenges but weren't sure where to start, this is a great way to dive in. This resource has 10 STEM challenges you can do with readily available materials. These are wonderful for team-building and can be used with a wide grade range.

    This is the second set of 10 STEM Challenges You Can Do Today, but these challenges are all self contained so you do not have to do the previous STEM challenges to try these. The .zip file contains a PDF file with all of the pages you need, as well as two AVI movie files showing a synthesized 4-bar linkage for the 10th challenge. Photographs of finished challenge samples are included for each STEM challenge!

    The challenges cover a wide range of engineering disciplines: materials engineering (bubble challenge), industrial engineering (fidget fix), acoustical engineering (musical instrument), mechanical engineering (elevator, windshield wipers), code creator (software engineering), aeronautical engineering (windmill)


    • 10 STEM challenges, each including
      • a description
      • photographs of examples
      • a display page stating the challenge
      • 5 "Talk Like an Engineer" word cards with relevant vocabulary (including links to Quizlet Study Sets).

    The Challenges

    • Design a Zip Line
    • Design a Windmill
    • Fidget Fix
    • Code Creator (create simple code with conditional statement IF ELSE, no computer necessary!)
    • Design a Musical Instrument
    • Bubble Maker
    • Elevator Challenge
    • Design a Hammock
    • Printing Press
    • Windshield Wipers (synthesize a 4-bar linkage)

    Also Includes

    • Graphic organizers
    • Engineering report
    • Rubric. Choose either to document each challenge, or use the provided interactive pages (2) in your science notebooks.

    Please note: While these challenges are designed to be completed with readily available classroom and household materials, your students will have an easier time completing the challenges if you have the following materials available: foam paper sheets (for the printing press challenge), metal fasteners (for the windshield wiper challenge), thin cardboard (such as from cereal and other food boxes), and string (for the zip line and elevator challenges). You will also need to either have bubble solution or make your own with water, dish detergent, and either corn syrup or glycerin.

    If you are looking for a more rigorous approach to the engineering design process, please view my engineering design challenge resources (linked below).

    Want to go paperless?

    I have created a STEM Journal for use with ANY STEM Challenge where you can record the engineering design process without wasting paper.
