PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenges: This set contains three fabulous STEM Challenges that all have the intriguing addition of math task cards to complete! This is a design event in which students solve some math problems, gather materials based on their answers, and then build a structure!

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

Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process for each challenge. The packages contain step-by-step procedures for the teacher that are clearly marked with the Design Process steps. The accompanying lab sheets for students are also marked. Students will plan independently and then join with teammates as they create the best design possible. Each challenge contains a Reading passage with a data table that is about the topic of the challenge- either towers, bridges, or boats. Students use the reading passage and data table in solving the eight math problems. The math problems are provided in two formats- either a set of eight task cards or a one-page sheet. Answer sheets for students to record their solutions and answer sheets for the teacher are also provided. You will also find three variations of the math problems- to adapt to your group as needed.

Some specifics about each design challenge:

In Towers students will use a Reading passage with a data table that is about the tallest buildings and structures in the world, along with some familiar landmarks or famous buildings. Students will use the materials they gather to build a tower. You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: Craft sticks, Straws, Masking tape, Rubber bands, Cups, Pipe cleaners, Cardboard pieces, and Cardboard tubes.

In Bridges students will solve the math problems, gather the materials, and build bridge to span a 12-inch gap. The data table used for the math portion is all about famous bridges.
