PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenge: Here’s a third great challenge to help get a school year started with STEM and use those brand new school supplies- specifically pencils!

In this challenge, students will use a specific amount of pencils and a few other materials to build a tower. Here’s the hitch: Something on the tower has to twirl and have a specific purpose for the twirling. The groups will have to decide how and what will be twirling and a creative reason for it! You will be amazed at the creativity students display with the twirling apparatus!

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes:
• New pencils
• Cardstock
• String
• Craft sticks
• Pipe cleaners
• Straws
• Cotton swabs
• Rubber bands
• Masking tape
• Art Supplies: like construction paper, crayons, markers
• Hole Punchers
• Copy paper

The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 4 pages of teacher directions, 4 pages of photographs, one extra Hints page, constraints poster, lab sheet with sample answers, and a Terms of Use page. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

This challenge will need 1 class session (1hour) to complete.
