Product Description
Are you ready for some fun real-life STEM challenges that students love? This bundle has three that we created and explored and tested just for you! Its Building Hammocks, Sailboats, and Suspension Bridges!

Note: This package contains three challenges. Each may be purchased separately.

Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process for each challenge. The packages contain step-by-step procedures for the teacher that are clearly marked with the Design Process steps. The accompanying lab sheets for students are also marked. Each challenge includes photos, helpful hints, sample students answers with lab sheets, and scoring rubrics. Best of all, all forms are included in an editable format!

Some specifics about each design challenge:

In Suspension Bridges students are designing and building a suspension bridge. They will need to learn a little about how suspension bridges work before beginning and then see if their final model is, indeed, a true suspension bridge. This challenge should take three class sessions. This may include the time you need to take to have students research suspension bridges or look at materials you gather to help them understand how a suspension bridge works. Materials you will need in addition to this package include craft sticks, hot glue guns and glue sticks, string, tape, and card board.

In Sailboats your students are designing and building a boat using only a few supplies. The real trick is that the boat must sail when the wind is added. Finally, the boat will be tested for its ability to hold weight. Throughout the challenge, students will test for floating ability, then sailing, and then holding weight. They will also modify whenever they find their boats taking on water! It’s a very competitive activity but filled with collaborative opportunities and creative designing. You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes aluminum foil, copy paper, straws, craft sticks, tape, water containers, towels, and a fan.

In Hammocks your students will have restricted supplies that are not replenished and task constraints that will make them think! Teams will devise a building plan and retrieve supplies based on that plan. They are not allowed to re-visit the supplies. This will lead to some very clever use of the materials and great problem-solving! (You can, of course, relax these constraints for your students!) You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: Fabric scraps, Felt pieces, Craft Foam, Newspaper, Heavyweight paper (like a brown sack), Rubber Bands, Straws, String, Tape, Scissors, Digital Scale (optional as weights can be counted) and Weights (like pennies or washers).

For each package, you will receive Cover, Teacher Background, Materials and Preparation page, pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, pages of Helpful Hints, pages of photos, a listing of task constraints to display, lab sheets specific to each task, sample answers, a scoring rubric, and a Terms of Use page. The page count listed includes everything including the forms in an editable file.

Check the individual listing for each package for more information.

This set is a combination of three STEM Challenges. If you prefer they may be purchased separately:
Design a Sail Boat
