Product Description

Do your students like mysteries? This STEM Challenge will be an exciting adventure for them! Students have a mystery to solve with what they are building and what materials they will need to be successful!

In this challenge students will be assigned a structure to build and a list of possible materials. Teams will have to work together to choose the right materials to build their structure and stay within a purchasing budget for those materials. To make it really fun, every team will build something different.

You have the option to have all teams build the same thing- which makes this challenge packet last a long time! Each team will be given a challenge card with the type of structure being built and then the team will decide what materials will build it best. There are 6 challenge cards!

Students will be using Challenge cards that give them specific constraints for building either: Bridges, Towers, Rockets, Swing sets, Marble Runs, or Rocking Chairs.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: Craft sticks, Paper clips, Rubber bands, Cardboard tubes, Cups, Straws, Craft foam, Foil in 12 inch lengths, Toothpicks, Pipe cleaners, Card stock, Masking tape, Small bowls, Pennies, Markers, Marbles, Small toy figure (like a Lego man), and Construction paper scraps. These are optional items and you may substitute for any of them with materials you already have!
