How long should a STEM challenge take? Is there more to STEM challenges than just designing & building? How do I plan a STEM challenge; does it break down into smaller parts?
If you've found yourself asking these questions, this video is for you. Essentially, you’re wondering how to best approach the lesson/activity flow. Like so many things in life, there’s more than one way to get the job done well, but I’d like to share with you a tried and true approach that worked for me. I have named this approach the STEM Challenge Cycle. Hopefully, it will save you a bit of time in finding/tweaking the flow that works best for you and your kids!
