PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenge: Ready for another platform? This one is really fun and challenging!

**Please note: This package can be purchased as part of a money-saving bundle!

This STEM activity will have your students experimenting with ways to join craft sticks together to use in building a platform. There are criteria to follow in making the platform and the finished platform will be tested with weights. An added feature of this task is using a budget plan in which students must pay for the supplies.

Materials you will need in addition to this package include: craft sticks and glue. We used hot glue guns.

This package specifically contains: Cover Sheet, Background, Materials and Preparation page, 2 pages of Teacher’s Step-by-Step Procedures, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 3 pages of photos, Task Rules page, several versions of a lab sheet- one with sample student answers, and a Credits page.

This set works great with two other platform challenges:
STEM Challenge – Build a Platform Using Straws
STEM Challenge – Build a Platform Using Newspaper

This challenge is also available in a money-saving bundle:
STEM Challenges – A Bundle of STEM Activities All About Platforms

Or, even better this challenge can be found in a money-saving 6-Pack!
STEM Challenges 6-Pack Bundle featuring Bridges and Platforms
