Product Description
This is such an amazing collaborative STEM challenge! Students must join together with another group to complete the task!

Please note: This challenge is available in a money-saving bundle.

Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process for this challenge. They will be designing and creating towers or bridges using the same supplies. Each task has its own requirements. A bridge group will be partnered with a tower group and they must communicate as they design and build because in the end the tower will be placed on the bridge. Can the bridge group build a bridge with enough support for the tower? Can the tower group build a tower with a strong enough base? Can they successfully discuss their designs and make improvements so the two structures work together? It’s the ultimate collaborative challenge!

There are many options for using this package- including building the towers and bridges without combining them!

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Background, Materials and Preparation page, 2 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 4 pages of photos, listing of task constraints to display, task requirement cards to use with each group, lab sheets specific to each task, generic lab sheets, sample answers of one set of lab sheets, and a scoring rubric. All forms are also provided in an editable format. The page count listed includes everything.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: modeling dough, rubber bands, craft sticks, straws, card stock paper, and masking tape.

This challenge works perfectly with two more that follow the same plan:
Launchers and Targets
Rescue Devices

A money-saving bundle with all three challenges can be found here:
