Product Description
Here’s another fantastic real-life STEM challenge featuring a rescue! It’s all about getting across a chasm!

This challenge is available in a money-saving bundle!

In this challenge students will be trying to build a device that will transport an object across a chasm. The scenario includes hiking and having a swinging bridge collapse making it necessary to transport some items across the ravine or chasm. The materials available for the rescue are only the items they might have had in their backpacks on the pretend hike. Finally, to make this really tricky, students have to make the device powered by the wind! Your class may have a lively discussion about why wind power would be necessary!

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: Paper clips, Pipe cleaners, Copy paper, Card stock, Small cups, Rubber bands, Aluminum foil, Ping pong balls, String or fishing line, Fan, Stopwatch, and Plastic boxes (optional).

The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 6 pages of teacher directions, a constraints list in poster form and a smaller version (with an ink saver page included), 3 pages of photographs, lab sheet, and a scoring rubric. In addition, all forms are provided in an editable format. Student answer sheets are not included, but samples from student work are included in the teacher direction pages. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

This challenge works great with two more Real Life Challenges:
Cargo Drops

This challenge will need 1-2 class sessions to complete.
