This STEM activity was inspired by a challenge I made for myself back in 2015. I wanted to end the year on a strong note with my students by doing something different. I challenged myself to do a week of fun STEM activities with my students and this was one of the activities we tried. The challenge is fairly self explanatory and more information can be found on my blog post: https://theardentteacher.com/2015/05/26/a-week-of-stem-activities

You can buy the entire week of activities as a bundle for a greatly decreased price here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/A-Week-of-STEM-Activities-2493591
This packet includes a handout for each challenge (Army Man Launchers, Newspaper Towers, Popsicle Bridges, Unsinkable Ship, Baby Lifejackets) as well as a teacher informational page.
