Product Description
This STEM bundle includes activities that guide students through the engineering design process to develop various objects (transport device, power transmission tower, periscope, cargo ship, fidget spinner, and an invention. Start with the transport device for an introductory lesson on the engineering design process, then work through any of the other challenges.

Students will need to use higher order thinking skills and teamwork as they work in small groups to complete these challenges.

*Disclaimer: I have done my best to keep these as safe as possible. However, please make sure that you do your own due diligence when performing any STEM challenge. Adult supervision is necessary. Please use care, caution, and your best judgement when performing any STEM challenge, engineering challenge, or science experiment. The seller disclaims all liability for any damage or injury which might arise from the use of any of these projects. If you will use neodymium magnets, please be aware that I do not recommend most children handle these. They are very strong and dangerous if swallowed. If using them, please read the instructions thoroughly so that they are fixed/glued before your students interact with them.
