Product Description
STEM Engineering Challenge: Kids love rockets! Anything that blasts off or explodes is what they request in a science experience! So, here is a perfect choice for a STEM Challenge!

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

This STEM activity will have your students experimenting with ways to make a balloon travel along a vertical path successfully. They will be challenged to use supplies in the most efficient way and launch the balloon rocket as high as possible. Along the way they will work collaboratively and make on-the-spot improvements in their designs.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: balloons, index cards, string, masking tape, and straws.

The product specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Overview, Materials and Preparation page, 2 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 3 pages of photos, a 2-page lab sheet with answer key, a 1-page lab sheet with answer key, a Terms of Use page, and a Credits page.

This challenge works perfectly with other Balloon Challenges:
