Product Description
It’s time to build another platform! Your students are going to love this! This is a teacher pleaser, too, since it only uses two materials and both are things you probably already have! Easy-peasy!

Note: This challenge can be purchased as part of money-saving bundles!

STEM is hands-on, think outside the box, inquiry-based, collaboration rich, and fun! It’s total student engagement!

Give your kids some basic supplies, a list of requirements for the task, and then stand back and watch! It’s a time for the best learning ever- kids will build and re-build, test and re-test, fail and try again. The learning is amazing!

This STEM activity will have your students experimenting with ways to join straws together to use as a building support and then designing and building a platform. There are specific rules to follow in the construction of the platform and the final structure will be tested with weight. One added feature of this challenge is having students use a budget for the supplies. Planning is key!

Materials you will need in addition to this package include: straws and paper clips.

This package specifically contains: Cover Sheet, Background, Materials and Preparation page, 4 pages of Teacher’s Step-by-Step Procedures with helpful hints, 3 pages of photos, Task Rules page, 2 versions of a lab sheet- one with sample student answers, a scoring rubric, and an editable file with all forms.

Newspaper Platforms
Craft Stick Platforms
