PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Engineering Challenge: Another fabulous challenge set with the same supplies and two tasks! Students will work in to design two different devices and then join with a partner group!

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

Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process for this challenge. They will be designing and creating either a rescue cranking device or a rescue carrier using the same supplies. Each task has its own requirements. The rescue cranking device group will be partnered with a carrier group to combine the two structures into a rescue method to retrieve cargo from the bottom of a “cliff”. Can the crank team make a device that will wind up the rope (string)? Can the carrier group create a container that will not dump out the cargo? Can the two teams work together and carry out the rescue?

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Background, Materials and Preparation page, 2 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 3 pages of photos, listing of task constraints to display, task requirement cards to use with each group, lab sheets specific to each task, sample answers of lab sheets, a Terms of Use page, and a Credits page. The page count listed includes everything.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: straws, craft sticks, string, rubber bands, construction paper, and tape. The weights we used for the cargo were mini marshmallows.
