Product Description
STEM Challenge: Here’s a fantastic Earth Day challenge- that can be used all year long! It’s a water pipeline event!

NOTE: This challenge may be purchased in money-saving bundles!

In this challenge students will be using materials to design and a build a gravity powered water pipeline. They will transport water from a main tank to a smaller tank using an incline that will allow this movement. They must also carefully connect the pipes and make sure those connections are water tight. Testing and plugging leaks will be part of the task. This is an easy prep challenge with simple supplies, but takes lots of trial and error and thinking! Students will also be intrigued by the scenario of building the pipeline which tackles a household chore- how to get water to your dogs!

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes:
• Straws
• Cups in two sizes
• Craft sticks in two sizes
• Masking tape
• Rubber bands
• Towels

The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 5 pages of teacher directions, a constraints list, 4 pages of photographs, one extra Hints page, student lab sheet with sample answers, Science information page, a scoring rubric, and the Terms of Use page.
