You get: A STEM challenge all about simple machines!
Students will create a replica of an ancient monolith such as a pillar of Stonehenge, the Moai of Easter Island, or an Egyptian Obelisk. Ancient cultures built structures such as these with very simplistic tools and machines. Using a simple machine, students will attempt to raise the monolith to a standing position.
Included in the challenge:
Student planning pages
Suggestions for books and video links
Engineering Design Process Poster
