PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Engineering Challenges: Your students love building things- harness that energy with these STEM Challenges!

STEM activities are so much fun! Give your students some simple directions, supplies, and the chance to explore and they will just jump right in! They will manipulate supplies, learn as they go, re-do, re-cut, re-build, and re-think! Students will be thinking critically without being aware of it, talking and collaborating, and problem solving. Best of all, it’s total engagement! Kids love STEM tasks!

These three STEM challenges will have your students building three different things with a variety of materials.

*** Please note: This package contains three lessons. Each may be purchased separately.

In Build a Car students will have specific supplies and must design a car that rolls. They must work together to use the supplies in a creative way. Their thinking will truly be tested as they encounter problems to solve.

In Building Boats your students will use simple supplies you probably already have on hand and they will choose which materials they wish to use. To make this even more challenging students have a materials spending budget and must stay within it while building their boat.

In Build a Marble Maze students will design a maze through which a marble can travel. They will fold and bend paper or cardboard into the maze paths and then try their invention repeatedly. Your students will love this one!

You will need additional materials for use of these packages.
For Cars you will need: cardboard, Styrofoam, cardstock, empty water bottles, plastic and Styrofoam cups, popsicle sticks, dowel sticks, pipe cleaners, straws, washers, bottle caps, boxes, aluminum foil, rubber bands, twist ties, tape, string, and glue.

For Boats you will need: straws, masking, tape, craft foam, aluminum foil, waxed paper, plastic wrap, cups, water containers, weight (like pennies), and lots of paper towels!

For Mazes you will need: boxes (like a gift box), card board, card stock, copy paper, index cards, construction paper, marbles, craft items (like Styrofoam, foam, poms-poms, sponges, tissue paper), scissors, masking tape, and rulers.

For each package you will receive: a lesson guide that provides a materials list and then step-by-step procedures to follow to make this a great experience; a page of Helpful Hints that gives ideas of specific things to think about while using this package; lab sheets; sample answer sheets from students; photos to help in your use of the challenges; and a page of Extensions that will give you ideas of continuing the activity as a whole class or in your science/math centers.

This set is a combination of three STEM challenges. If you prefer the packages may be purchased separately.
STEM Challenge - Build a Marble Maze
STEM Challenge - Building Boats
STEM Challenge - Build a Car!
