Product Description
STEM Challenge: Here’s another tower challenge! We added a little twist to this one! The kids loved it! It’s a satellite dish tower!

Note: This challenge is available in money-saving bundles!

This challenge is to build a tower that will hold a satellite dish aloft. The tower does not need to be a specific height, but must hold the dish aloft and the satellite dish must resemble one. Also, the satellite dish must rotate in some way in order to be moved to receive a “signal”. Here’s the twist: Each group will be divided into two parts. One part will receive the supplies for the satellite dish and build it while the other part will receive the supplies for the tower and build it. At some point the two teams within the group will have to work together to assemble the entire structure. It’s a fabulous feat of collaboration!

The package specifically contains: Cover sheet, Teacher Background, 1 page Materials and Prep list, 5 pages of Teacher directions with helpful hints, Set of Criteria cards for students, 2 full pages of the task constraints, Lab Sheet in two versions, 4 pages of Tower Photos with more details, a scoring rubric and all forms are editable.

Supplies needed in addition to this package include: Cups - plastic or Styrofoam, Plastic lids for the cup or similar round flat objects, Flat Styrofoam tray or bowl, Rubber bands, Pipe cleaners, Masking tape, Straws, and Craft Sticks.

I know you will love this challenge purely for the collaboration and teamwork your groups will display. We had fabulous results!

This tower package works perfectly with two more that involve holding something aloft:
Tennis Ball Towers
STEM Challenge Water Towers
