It’s the end of the school year, so make sure to keep students interested! This boat building STEM / STEAM Challenges is perfect for summer – or any time of the year!
Individually, or in partners/groups, students work against a criteria and constraints list to build a boat that is designed for capacity. You can choose to run the challenge as a single 20-30 minute fun building task to do on a rainy day, or complete the presentation section and add the writing extension to meet science and language demands, creating a full 1 hour long lesson.
