Product Description
STEM Challenges: Designing with only a dozen of each supply! You may hear your students groan at this news, but then they will jump right in and tackle these towers!

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

These three STEM challenges are all about building towers, but there is so much more. Each challenge uses only two supplies and only a dozen in quantity of those supplies. Students must think creatively to best use the given materials and also use balancing and counterbalancing to make their precarious towers stand. Just how tall can they get?

In Foil Towers your students will be using a sheet of foil and some tape. The goal is to build the tallest possible tower. Will the tower stand up? What height will the tallest tower be? How will you create a base? This challenge presents great ways to collaborate, but can be completed individually!

In Card Towers your students will use index cards and tape. How creative will they be in folding, cutting, and bending those cards? How can you use the small amount of tape effectively? Which style of tower will work best- tall and straight or one with support legs? How many legs does it need?

In Straw Towers your students will be using only straws and tape. Since the tape gets too heavy with the straws where should you use the tape? How much tape? Can you think of ways to hold straws together without tape? Can you build it taller than 100 cm?

You will need additional materials for these challenges.
For Foil Towers you will need: aluminum foil and masking tape.
For Card Towers you will need: 5 x 8 index cards and masking tape.
For Straw Towers you will need: straws and masking tape.

For each package you will receive: Cover, Teacher Overview, Materials and Preparation page, 2 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 3 pages of photos, 2 versions of task constraints, a 2-page lab sheet with answer key, a 1-page lab sheet with sample answers, a Terms of Use page, and a Credits page.

This set is a combination of three STEM Challenges. If you prefer they may be purchased separately:
STEM Challenge Designing with Dozens: Foil Towers
