Product Description
STEM Challenge: Can your students build a carousel that is propelled by balloon power? Yes, they can and it will amaze you!

This challenge can be purchased as part of a money-saving bundle!

This STEM activity will have your students using some very simple supplies to create a carousel that turns. The carousel is powered with a balloon or balloons and must stay aloft on its central turning pole. Will it turn? How fast can it turn? How many balloons should you use? How will you attach it to the central pole? Great questions for your collaborative groups! The problem-solving and immediate modifications to designs are really fun to watch!

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Overview, Materials and Preparation page, 5 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions filled with Helpful Hints, one additional page of hints, constraints of the task poster, 3 pages of photos, a 2-page lab sheet with answer key, a 1-page lab sheet with answer key, Terms of Use page and Credits. But there is more! The challenge also includes scoring rubrics and editable files for the constraints poster and lab sheets.

Supplies needed in addition to this package include: foam plates, balloons, heavy paper or cardboard, broomsticks or PVC pipe, pipe cleaners, rubber bands, string, cardboard tubes, masking tape, and optional craft items for decorating the final carousel. Of course, substitutions can be made for any of these!
