PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Engineering Challenge: Here’s another easy prep and easy materials challenge that will be the most fun in your STEM class ever! It’s a bridge building activity that gives students a choice of the style bridge they want to try. The best news is: there are only two materials! That’s right! Two materials!

Note: This challenge is available in a money-saving bundle!

In this challenge, students will have images of four kinds of bridges, a bunch of straws, some tape, and the challenge of building the bridge and being creative in using the one material they have! Can it be done? Of course, kids will be superb in their designs, their creative use of the straws, and the extras they add to their structures.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes:
• Straws
• Masking tape
• String
• Small containers
• Pennies (or weights)

The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 4 pages of teacher directions, 5 pages of photographs, 1 extra Hints page, 1 lab sheet for student use with sample answers, Task constraints with a scoring rubric, constraints without the rubric, and a Terms of Use page. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

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