PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Engineering Challenge: Kids love to build boats! Let’s add a sail to the boat and see what they can do!

If you have tried a STEM challenge that involves boat building, this new version will be loved by your students just as much.

This STEM challenge will have your students designing and building a boat using only a few supplies. The real trick is that the boat must sail when wind is added. Finally, the boat will be tested for its ability to hold weight. Throughout the challenge students will test for floating ability, then sailing, and then holding weight. They will also modify whenever they find their boats taking on water! It’s a very competitive activity, but filled with collaborative opportunities and creative designing.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: aluminum foil, copy paper, straws, crat sticks, tape, water containers, towels, and a fan.

The product specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Overview, 2 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 3 pages of photos, a 2-page lab sheet with answer key, and a Terms of Use page.
