Product Description
STEM Engineering Challenge: All about bubbles! Bubbles, Bubbles, Everywhere!

This updated best-selling STEM challenge has even more detailed teacher directions that include photos of student work, more photos, a new lab sheet, and some new features about independent sketches and combining ideas. The original lab sheets of this challenge are still included and can be used as an alternate version, if this meets your needs. If you already own this package re-download it and take advantage of the new features!

*** Please note: This lesson is available in a combination package.

Kids love bubbles! This STEM Challenge has elements of fun, but also a great design and building challenge.

The Engineering Design Process has many steps and so many opportunities for students to engage in group problem solving and collaboration. The learning goes well beyond Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Group dynamics, determination, and critical thinking are all a part of STEM challenges.

This STEM Challenge will have your students exploring with a bubble solution. The Exploration or Imagining stage of the process includes trying to create bubbles in specific ways and learning how to manipulate the bubble solution. The design challenge takes the fun one step further as students create a way to make the largest or most unusual bubbles they can!

The lesson guide provides a materials list, a preparations list, the bubble solution recipe, and a simple explanation of the science behind bubbles. You will also find step-by-step lesson procedures to follow to make this a great experience. Two pages of Helpful Hints gives ideas of specific things to think about while using this package. Two versions of lab sheets are provided- one with sample student answers- and 3 pages of photos to guide the use of the package. A page of Extensions gives ideas of continuing the activity as a whole class or in your science/math centers.

Materials needed in addition to this package include: dish-washing liquid, glycerin, small containers (like aluminum pans), plastic lids to containers, straws, various items to use in the design challenge (like pipe cleaners, washers, rubber bands, plastic canvas, screen, binder rings, paper clips, cups), and lots of towels.

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Background page, Materials and Preparation page, Recipe and Science page, 4 pages of Step-by-Step Procedures, Extensions page, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 2 versions of a Lab sheet, one version of lab sheet with sample student answers, 3 pages of Photos, and a Credits page.
