Challenge Bundle of Same Supplies
STEM Challenges 6 Pack Bundle featuring Easy Supplies 2

Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process for this challenge. They will be designing and creating either a launching device or a target using the same supplies. Each task has its own requirements. A launching device group will be partnered with a target group and they must communicate as they design and build. When both groups are finished they will try the launcher by firing at the target. Can the launcher group design a device that will propel the soft object at the right angle? Can the target group create a structure that will withstand being hit? Can the two groups really have a partnership and work together? This package includes constraint of the task for each structure in two formats- a single sheet or small cards to make for each group. Lab sheets are also specific to the two tasks. Another option is to have the entire class create the launchers one day and then the targets on the second day.

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Background, Materials and Preparation page, 2 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 3 pages of photos, listing of task constraints to display, task requirement cards to use with each group, lab sheets specific to each task, sample answers of lab sheets, a scoring rubric. Also, all forms are provided in an editable file. The page count listed includes everything.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: cardboard tubes, Styrofoam cups, rubber bands, craft sticks, straws, plastic spoons, masking tape, and mini marshmallows.

This challenge works perfectly with two more Same Supplies projects:
Bridges and Towers
Rescue Devices
