Product Description
STEM Challenge: Can you design a boat that will float and hold weight?

****Please note: This challenge is available in a several combination packages!

This STEM Challenge is our new favorite in my STEM Lab! It’s a great task with some excellent opportunities to re-design, re-think, and re-build!

STEM activities provide wonderful opportunities for hands-on collaborative work. Students think critically and creatively and learn to allow failures to cement their learning. A STEM experience is the perfect place to learn to “Try, Try Again!

This STEM activity will have your students designing and building a boat! Using simple supplies you probably already have on hand, students choose which materials they wish to use. To make this even more challenging students have a materials spending budget and must stay within it while building their boat.

Materials you will need in addition to this package including straws, masking, tape, craft foam, aluminum foil, waxed paper, plastic wrap, cups, water containers, weight (like pennies), and lots of paper towels!

This package specifically contains: Cover Sheet, Background, Materials and Preparation page, 5 pages of Teacher’s Step-by-Step Procedures, Extension Page with ideas for more activities, 1 pages of Helpful Hint, 3 pages of photos, Constraints of the Task page, a pricing list for the budget feature, a cost sheet for students to use, 3 versions of a lab sheet- one with sample student answers, and a Terms of Use page. And there is more! The challenge now includes editable lab sheets, an editable constraints sheet, and scoring rubrics (not editable)! The total page count listed includes everything.

This is a SUPER activity and one your students will ask to be repeated!
